Ayatullah Ali Khamenei, the Supreme Leader of Iran, told about the letters of Donald Trump, the U.S. President, which were addressed to the American partners on the Middle East. The sources of New York Times and Washington Post confirmed the existing of such letters.
A few days ago Trump wrote a letter to leaders of #PersianGulf states, which was revealed to us. He wrote: "I spent $7 trillion and you must do something in return." The U.S. wants to own humiliated slaves.— Khamenei.ir (@khamenei_ir) May 9, 2018
New York Times reported that Trump sent two letters to the partners on the Middle East, where he stated that he spent too much money for the assistance for the region and calls the allies for taking measures on counterwork Iran’s influence.
In its turn, Washington Post told about a letter sent by Trump to the leaders of the Gulf states. It was noted that the letter was sent around two weeks ago. Trump calls the U.S. allies for more active actions in Syria in the letter. Besides, he asks for considering two options of a solution for the long-running conflict between Qatar and Saudi Arabia.
In both letters Trump is trying to intensify pressure upon Iran and he writes that the U.S. expects the region to be more active as the U.S. allocated a lot of money in the region since the terrorist attack on September 11, 2001.
It should be noted that the U.S. closest allies in the Gulf are Saudi Arabia, UAE and Israel. All these states severely condemn the Iran Nuclear Deal, signed in 2015.
As it was reported earlier, Tehran considers Washington’s actions as a clear violation of the international law and right of self-defense, provided by the 51st article of the UN Charter.
Earlier, Donald Trump, the U.S. President stated that the U.S. leaves the Iran Nuclear Deal. Due to this he called for developing new sanctions against Iran and presented the list of demands to the Iranian regime. Six representatives of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and three people related to the Corps company are in the sanctions list.
