Iranian Supreme Leader Sayyid Ali Hosseini Khamenei has called on Muslim countries to unite against the US and their common enemies.
"The Iranian nation has successfully resisted bullying attempts by America and other arrogant powers and we will continue to resist… All Muslim nations should stand united against America and other enemies," Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said.
Iran's leader criticised Trump for saying on Tuesday some countries in the Middle East "wouldn't last a week" without US protection.
"Such remarks are humiliation for Muslims… Unfortunately, there is war in our region between Muslim countries. The backward governments of some Muslim countries are fighting with other countries," Khamenei said.
The day before, US Assistant Secretary of State for International Security and Non-Proliferation Christopher Ford said that the US did not intend to renegotiate the Iranian nuclear deal but was seeking a supplemental agreement.
However, later in the day, French President Emmanuel Macron said, Trump would rip up the JCPOA, despite strong suggestions from world leaders to keep the deal and, if necessary, build on it.
The JCPOA with Iran was signed on July 14, 2015 by the P5+1 group — China, Germany, France, Russia, Great Britain and the United States. This agreement stipulated a gradual lifting of anti-Iran sanctions and in exchange Tehran pledged not to develop or acquire nuclear weapons, maintaining a peaceful nature of its nuclear program.
