Khamenei: Sanctions on Iran Started in 1979, Will Continue No Matter What

Iran's supreme leader also said the country's economic situation was better than Europe's


Iran's Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, accused the US and EU on Wednesday of lying over sanctions being connected to Tehran's nuclear program.

Khamenei said the West had imposed sanctions on Iran ever since the Islamic Revolution in 1979, according to reports in Iran's Mashregh News, which is affiliated with the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC).
