No 'guarantee' of final nuclear deal, says Iran's Ayatollah Khamenei

  • Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the supreme leader of Iran, has said that the preliminary nuclear agreement should not be seen as a “guarantee” that a final deal with the six world powers would be clinched.

    In an online statement, Khamenei, who is seen as a hardliner in dealings with the west, said that it is possible that the “untrustworthy side” plans to “restrict” Iran when it comes to the details of the agreement.

    He reiterated the Iranian position that sanctions must be lifted as soon as the nuclear agreement is implemented.
