Iran's Khamenei warns government about deception by European states: state TV

DUBAI (Reuters) - Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Monday warned his country's government not to be deceived by European signatories of the nuclear deal with major powers, now under threat after a U.S. withdrawal.

"America's enmity toward Iran is obvious. Our enemies' heart is full of enmity toward the Islamic Republic ... our officials should not be deceived by the Europeans ... don't be fooled by Europeans," Khamenei said, state TV reported.

Washington's major European allies opposed U.S. President Donald Trump's decision to abandon the deal and have been trying to salvage the pact.
