TEHRAN, July 18. /TASS/. Iran is not a supporter of unleashing a war, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Hosseini Khamenei said on Saturday.
He responded to U.S. President Barack Obama, who called insufficient opportunities of the Iranian armed forces.
"We are not supporters of any war and do not welcome unleashing any," the Iranian leader said. "However, if it happens, Iran will give a resolute rebuff and will humiliate America."
The past twelve years of talks on the Iranian nuclear programme and the West’s attempts to prevent Iran from having nuclear activities have only made the country’s nuclear industry work, he said.
Khamenei thanked the team of negotiators and the country’s president on the successful completion of the agreements on settlement of the Iranian nuclear programme. At the same time, he said it important to mind interests of the country and added the Islamic Republic of Iran will never give in despite all provocations from the enemies.
"Whether the text is adopted or not, we shall not stop helping our friends in the region," he said.
On July 14, Iran and the Sextet (five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany) finalised a many-years marathon to offer agreements on settlement of the Iranian nuclear problem. The final agreement contains a main document and five technical attachments.
