Iran's Ayatollah Khamenei warns against US 'deceit' in nuclear deal

Tehran, Iran: Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei warned on Tuesday against American "deceit" after Tehran finalised a landmark nuclear deal with world powers, led by the US.



In his first comments since the agreement was implemented, Khamenei stressed in a letter to President Hassan Rouhani the need to "guard against deceit and violations of arrogant states particularly the United States".

The supreme leader, who had the final say on Tehran's nuclear negotiations, welcomed the lifting of sanctions under the deal, but said that was "not enough for boosting the economy and improving people's lives", according to the letter published by the IRNA news agency.
