Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei

(Worthy News) - Iran’s top leader said on Monday he had ordered preparations to increase uranium enrichment capacity if a nuclear deal with world powers falls apart after the U.S. withdrawal, and he vowed never to accept limits on Tehran’s ballistic missile program.

  1. Putin has told Iran to leave Syria. The U.S. and Israel are set to counter any Iranian move.
    Curious .... seems Iran has made Russia, the U.S. and Israel into an alliance.
