Iran will maintain independent policy whoever win US election
The Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has said that Iran will not be concerned about who emerges the winner of the US race for presidency and that the Islamic Republic’s stance towards the US hegemony will remain unaltered whatever the result of the election.
The Leader said, “Some may think that a government can benefit from submitting to the demands of the United States, but the governments that surrendered to American bullying have suffered the most and their troubles have only multiplied.”
“Iran’s policy towards the US is calculated and clear and does not change with the movement of individuals,” he stressed.
The leader noted that the arrival or departure of political figures might have implications for others, but that Iranians “will be unconcerned and the Islamic Republic’s policy will be unaffected.”
Ayatollah Khamenei further said the main reason for America's enmity with the Islamic establishment is Iran’s opposition to oppressive policies and its refusal to recognize hegemony.
“This enmity will continue and the only way to resolve it is for the other side to lose hope in the assumption that it can inflict a major blow to the Iranian nation and government.”
Ayatollah Khamenei also pointed to the allegations by American officials themselves of widespread cheating in the ongoing elections and said the incumbent president, whose administration is holding the vote, says this is the most fraudulent election in the United States while his rival says Donald Trump intends to cheat.
"Disregarding who will come to power in America, the current situation attests to a severe civil, political and moral decline in the US -- something that has been acknowledged by thinkers in the United States.”
