Speaking in a ceremony to present Army graduates with decorations, the Supreme Leader provided comments on the recent visit by high-ranking Iranian politicians to New York and the course of their diplomatic actions as optimistic and within the favorable regards of the policies of the Islamic Republic.
Ayatollah Khamenei said "We support the diplomatic movements of the government and appreciate diplomatic efforts. We support what happened in the recent trip. Some of what happened in New York, though, we believe that was not becoming, but we are optimistic about our dear diplomatic delegation, however, pessimistic about Americans.”
"We are cynical about Americans and have no trust in them. The US government is unreliable, conceited, unreasonable, and unfaithful. It is a government possessed by the international Zionist web for the sake of which it has to appease the Zionist regime and be flexible to it.”
