Shortly before Iran’s top leader Ali Hosseini Khamenei travels to Vienna for nuclear talks with world powers, including the US, he compared US President Joe Biden with his predecessor Donald Trump. Khamenei said Biden was no different from Trump and called him a “predatory wolf”.

The top leader on Saturday criticized the US behavior on the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran, saying the country acted as if Iran had left the deal when the US unilaterally withdrew from it in 2018 and imposed harsh sanctions.

Regarding the signatories of the agreement from Europe, Khamenei said: “They are also like the US, but in words and rhetoric they always demand as if it was Iran that ridiculed and undermined long negotiations”.

The remarks came at a meeting with the cabinet of President Ebrahim Raisi, which had received a comprehensive vote of confidence in parliament the previous Wednesday.

Earlier, the Iranian Supreme Leader said Tehran would not accept Washington’s “persistent” demands in talks to revive a 2015 nuclear deal and said the United States had not guaranteed it would never abandon the pact.

“The Americans acted completely cowardly and maliciously,” the state television quoted Ayatollah Ali Khamenei as saying.

“They once violated the nuclear agreement free of charge by opting out. Now they are expressly saying that they cannot give any guarantees that it will not happen again.”
