Iran’s Supreme leader called US sanctions a crime

US sanctions against Tehran are a crime aimed at the collapse of the country’s economy, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei said.

“Of course, US sanctions are a crime, a big crime against the nation,” said Khamenei, whose speech was shown on Iranian television.

According to him, with its sanctions, Washington aims to prevent Iran from progressing – mainly in the scientific sphere. In the long term, he noted, the sanctions are aimed at the collapse of the Iranian economy.

Earlier, Secretary of state Mike Pompeo said that the United States is imposing new sanctions against Iran, limiting the supply of metals and materials that can be used for the Islamic Republic’s nuclear, missile and military programs.
