Leader of Islamic Revolution: US senators’ letter reveals collapse of US political ethics

TEHRAN (Tasnim)- Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has slammed US senators’ letter against a possible deal over Iran’s nuclear program saying it reveals the “collapse of US political ethics.”

Ayatollah Khamenei also expressed concern about the “ploys” of the other side and said whenever the deadline for nuclear talks draws closer, they, particularly the Americans, toughen their tone.

Ayatollah Khamenei made the comments in a meeting with the chairman and members of the Assembly of Experts on Thursday.

His remarks came a few days after a group of 47 Republican senators wrote an open letter to the Iranian government, warning them that any nuclear deal they sign with US President Barack Obama’s administration won’t last after Obama leaves office.

Imam Khamenei reiterated his support for the Iranian negotiating team in talks with six world powers over Tehran’s nuclear program describing Iranian nuclear negotiators as “reliable and sympathetic individuals who are trying to secure the country’s interests.”
