Analysis by PMOI/MEK
Iran, July 4, 2019 - Iran’s recent measures of violating the 2015 nuclear deal by increasing its uranium enrichment stockpile over the 300-kilogram limit and promising to elevate the enrichment level above 3.67 percent is facing stiff international condemnations and warnings. This includes strong remarks from the United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, the United States and European countries, and even Russia and China.
This turn of events is causing major concerns for senior Iranian regime officials in Tehran that are making remarks about the roots of the mullahs’ nuclear dilemmas.
“If you remember, around 20 years, when the [PMOI/MEK] revealed that story regarding our nuclear dossier, leading to [IAEA Director General Mohamed] El-Baradei coming to Iran. The Americans then started making a lot of noise… They launched their psychological tactics against Iran on the international stage and began placing pressures. To this day, it has been nearly 20 years that we are involved in this issue. Why? Iran says we do not seek nuclear weapons. When [Iranian regime Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei] issues a fatwa saying it is forbidden, they would not understand. All in all, things cannot be changed,” said Iranian regime Majlis (parliament) speaker Ali Larijani.
“It is very unfortunate that recently [U.S. President Donald] Trump has sanctioned [Khamenei]. All right, sanction all you want; what does he have for you to sanction. It shows how much they fail to understand that Iran’s leader is a religious leader with millions of followers. With your measures, you are installing hatred in all their hearts. This further goes to show how they fail to understand Iran’s culture,” Larijani added.
Despite all the brouhaha made by the regime’s apologists and lobbyists abroad about sanctions targeting Khamenei being futile, these remarks by Larijani further prove how deeply concerned Tehran truly is of the sanctions against Khamenei who owns hundreds of billions of dollars, according to US officials.
