Iran Must Stop Looking to Europe for Salvation, Khamenei Says

  • Europe is incapable of complying with nuclear deal: ayatollah
  • Iran should not trust Europe’s ‘empty’ promises, he says

Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Iran should give up any hope that European powers want to rescue the 2015 nuclear deal from a U.S. assault.

While Iran would never end relations or deal-making with European countries and there’s a "slim possibility" they’ll salvage the deal, they’ve failed to put up a robust front against U.S. President Donald Trump’s exit from the pact and efforts to crush Iran’s economy with sanctions.
