The supreme leader of Iran Ayatollah Ali Khamenei warned the United States that it should avoid any wrong moves on the country’s nuclear deal with world powers. Khamenei’s statement comes in the wake of recent statement made by US President Donald Trump, wherein he had said that Iran has violated the agreement’s spirit. Khamenei said that any wrong moves will be dealt with accordingly by the Islamic Republic. Khamenei’s statement highlights the fact that the US may plan to revoke the nuclear deal with Iran. Trump had earlier said that the Iran deal is one of the worst he had ever dealt with. Khamenei said that Iran has always committed itself to discussions and negotiations and yet America is constantly creating problems with the nuclear deal. Khamenei said that America’s action is quite the same as bullying.
Meanwhile, in another development, Iran said today that it has developed the “father of all bombs”, which is comparable to the “mother of all bombs” that the United States has. The US has the Massive Ordnance Air Blast Bomb (MOAB) which the US Air Force dropped on tunnels in Afghanistan’s Nangarhar province from an MC-130 aircraft in April. General Amir Ali Hajizadeh, Airspace Commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards said that the bombs are ready for action and can be launched from aircraft also. He said that the bombs are extremely destructive. The bombs weigh 10-ton and they have been described as the father of all bombs. Earlier, Iran had also claimed that it has successfully tested its long-range missile defense system.
