DHAKA: Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei vowed that Iran would never cave to Western pressure, saying that it will act only in accordance with its own interests.
The Islamic Republic, he told a military audience, ‘makes its decisions solely based on the interests of its people and the country, even if all of the world’s powers get angry at its decisions’.
It ‘does not accept the demands of any superpower,’ he added, reports The Jerusalem Post.
The Ayatollah also accused ‘Western and Zionist media’ of fabricating reports on the biting effects of economic sanctions, hinting that the Iranian economy was not suffering.
