Ayatollah Khamenei made the remarks when receiving participants at the 8th summit of the 5th round of the Assembly of Experts which was held on Monday.
The Supreme Leader further said that such a behavior will make them more pariah in the eyes of the Iranian people.
He reiterated that the Islamic Republic will not retreat from its rational stance on the nuclear issue and will pursue enriching uranium to the extent that is required for the interest of the country even up to 60 percent enrichment.
Commenting on the strategic law of sanctions removal passed by Majlis, Ayatollah Khamenei pointed out that the law should be carefully followed as it is “good”.
He advised the the Iranian lawmakers (parliamentarians) and the government to cooperate in unison.
The result of this will be nothing but being obnoxious, Supreme Leader further noted.
The Islamic Republic will not step back from its logical positions on the nuclear issue and Iran will increase uranium enrichment to 60% if needed.
Pointing to a recent law ratified by the Iranian parliament obliging the administration of President Hassan Rouhani to scale back some its commitments under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the Supreme Leader asserted that the parliament ratified a law and the administration welcomed; they carried out some works that should be done until yesterday and hopefully, another part of the law will be implemented tomorrow.
He further referred to interpretation of the parliament from the way the administration is doing his job in this respect, noting that such differences can be resolved and the two sides should cooperate and avoid escaping or escalating such differences, which could be interpreted as divide in the country.
The administration considers itself obliged to implement laws and the legislature which is a good law should be implemented carefully, the Leader of the Islamic Revolution emphasized.
The rhetoric made by the US and three European countries on Iran’s scaling back of its obligations concerning the nuclear deal is wrong attitude, Ayatollah Khamenei said, adding that the Islamic Republic complied with its commitments based on the Islamic teachings from the day one until a long period, but the other parties who did not abide by their obligations were these four states; thus, they should be held accountable for their behavior.
The meeting was held observing health protocols in Imam Khomeini Mosque, downtown Tehran.
According to the Leader’s official website, Khamenei.ir, in this meeting, Imam Khamenei stated that Iran is not pursuing the production of nuclear weapons. He also emphasized, “Of course, Iran will not stay limited to an enrichment of 20%. And there is the possibility of increasing enrichment up to 60% in accordance with the country’s needs.”
“That international Zionist clown has said they won’t allow Iran to produce nuclear weapons. First of all, if we had any such intention, even those more powerful than him wouldn’t be able to stop us,” he said as quoted by the website.
