The West is lying when it claims that harsh economic sanctions imposed on Iran will be lifted if the Islamic Republic halts its nuclear progress, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on Wednesday, adding that the “enemies” were exaggerating the extent of the sanctions’ damage.
Khamenei’s comments came amid heightened tension in Iran over the accelerated drop of the country’s currency, the rial.
Last week, riot police fired tear gas, fought demonstrators and arrested money changers in and around the main bazaar in Tehran, with, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad blaming speculators for the rial’s slide, which is eating into living standards and destroying jobs in the industrial sector.
