Iran's supreme leader accuses US & Britain of trying to overthrow Islamic republic

A demonstrator dressed as the Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei participates a rally across from the White House in Washington, on Saturday, Jan. 6, 2018, in solidarity with anti-government demonstrators in Iran.

Iran's supreme leader has taken to Twitter to attack President Donald Trump, accusing the US leader of attempting to stir unrest after a wave of protests hit his country.

"Thirdly, this man who sits at the head of the White House- although, he seems to be a very unstable man-he must realize that these extreme and psychotic episodes won't be left without a response", he added.

Iran says it has "hard evidence" the recent deadly demonstrations were "very clearly directed from abroad".

The foreign enemies of Iran, like the United States, Israel and Al Saud, also happily fueled these movements and interfered in Iran's internal affairs.

"They damaged us during these days, they know there will be some sort of retaliation", he said, the Times reported.

Late in December 2017, peaceful protests over rising prices and economic problems broke out in some Iranian cities, but the unauthorized gatherings turned violent after a number of opportunists, some of them armed, vandalized public property and launched attacks on police stations and government buildings.

"The real reason for convening today is not protect human rights or promote the interests of the Iranian people, but rather a veiled attempt to continue to undermine the Iranian nuclear agreement".
