The nuclear deal between Iran and the Western powers did not bring any benefit to the average Iranian citizen and 6 months after the end of the sanctions, nothing has changed for the citizens of the Islamic Republic. It has been denounced by the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who, in a speech reported today by the national media, has accused the United States of having boycotted the agreements and of not honoring their promises.
Iran “will not accept any further dialogue with Washington,” said the leader, repeating the same threats he had already expressed in the past. For several months, Khamenei has been criticizing the fact that Iran has not earned any dividends after the commitment to scale back its nuclear program. “Was the end of the sanctions not meant to change people’s lives? Have you seen any tangible effects six months later?” – the Supreme Leader asked polemically.
The historic agreement was reached in Vienna in July. The 5 + 1 (US, Russia, China, France, Great Britain, and Germany) want to prevent Tehran from producing nuclear weapons for at least 10 years through this agreement they. Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, in a speech to the nation on the occasion of signing this agreement, he stated that all the goals had been achieved, stressing that the agreement “opened a new chapter” for the country.
