AFP: Khamenei says US, Britain will fail to isolate Iran


Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei lashed out Sunday at the US and Britain, labelling them Tehran’s main “enemies” and warning they will fail to isolate Iran over its nuclear issue, a report said.

“Americans are at the head of the list of enemies and the British are the most awful of them,” state television reported Khamenei as saying in an address to thousands of people to mark a major Shiite ceremony.

“Americans, Zionists and other oppressive powers tried to isolate Iran for the past 30 years, but they failed and with God’s help they will also fail in the future,” Khamenei said in reaction to sustained Western threats to isolate Iran over its controversial atomic programme.
