Iran will 'shred' nuclear deal if USA quits it - Ali Khamenei

"I don´t want to waste my time on answering the rants and whoppers of the brute USA president", Khamenei said in a speech to students in Tehran, published on his Telegram channel. If the USA tears up the deal, we will shred it ...

Khamenei, who has the final say on Iran's state matters, welcomed European support but said it was not sufficient.

Total's Chief Executive Officer Patrick Pouyanne said in an interview with International Oil Daily that the company would wait to see the consequences of Trump's decision, and if there are any laws that obliges it to withdraw from Iran, then it will comply.

"Europe must stand against practical measures (taken) by America", he said. "We welcomed this, but this is not enough", Khamenei told a meeting with a group of outstanding university students on October 18, the leader's official website reported.

Mr. Khamenei also said Iran was determined to continue its disputed ballistic missile program despite the pressure from Europe and the United States to suspend it.

He further said that "West‎ has no right to ask why Iran is present in the region, or why Iran has missiles".

European Union foreign ministers on Monday urged US lawmakers not to reimpose sanctions on Tehran but also discussed Iran's missile program, which they want to see dismantled. "We do not accept that Europe sings along with America's bullying and its unreasonable demands", Khamenei said.

"While the USA government continuously is acting against the Iranian nation with imposing new sanctions and creating economic difficulties, against Iraqis and Syrians with growing terrorism, against Yemeni people with bombarding them, and against the people of Bahrain with supporting dictators, they label Iran as a supporter of terrorism without providing any evidence". Why do you have missiles yourselves? Total was the first Western oil major to sign a deal with Iran to develop phase 11 of Iran's South Pars, the world's largest gas field.
