"They bring to bear economic pressure to separate the nation from the system ... but six United States presidents before him (Trump) tried this and had to give up", Khamenei said on his website Khamenei.ir.

The disturbances are a major challenge, but analysts expect the leadership will survive despite factional infighting and growing economic problems.

30 de junio de 2018, 11:40Tehran, June 30 (Prensa Latina) The leader of the Iranian Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, predicted today the failure of the US strategy against his country, which includes new economic sanctions.

The People's Mujahedin were founded in the 1960s against Iran's royalist government and went on to fight the Islamic regime after the 1979 revolution.

These include an attempt to shut down the global sale of Iranian oil, Tehran's main source of revenue, a threat that has cast a chill over the economy.

Mr Mukasey, who believes Europe is affected by pride over the deal, said that European countries will not want to be hit by sanctions and that pressure will cause the bloc to abandon the deal. "But it seems there is no crisis management plan to control the situation", said an official close to Khamenei's camp.

During the Thursday meeting, Ansari, who was also serving as the special envoy of the Iranian president, conveyed Hassan Rouhani's verbal message on the Iran nuclear deal to Brazilian President Michel Temer.

The agreement was made between Iran, the US, UK, Russia, France, China, Germany and the European Union to ensure Iran's nuclear programme was exclusively peaceful.

"Various scenarios of threats to the Iranian economy by the US government were examined and appropriate measures were taken to prepare for any probable USA sanctions, and to prevent their negative impact", IRNA said.

"Sanctions can not be blamed for all the internal problems".

The country's rial currency has lost up to 40 per cent of its to curb Iranian oil exports.




"Of course, this does not mean that we will never walk away from the JCPOA under any circumstances, but we know the opposite side's goal", the Iranian foreign minister said.

But while cries of "Death to the Dictator" resembled chants of "Death to the Shah" four decades ago in the bazaar, analysts and insiders ruled out any chance that Iran is once more on the brink of a seismic shift in its political landscape.

"We have a problem with recession, but closing the stores will damage us more", she said.

"I think we really had some substantive talks on Iran". The protests were peaceful in the beginning, but later took a violent turn and led to clashes between some protestors and police forces.

Shots could be heard on videos circulated on social media from the protests in Khorramshahr which has been the scene of demonstrations for the past three days, along with the nearby city of Abadan.

"But six USA presidents before him tried this and had to give up". The cost of imports has skyrocketed.

Giuliani called for a boycott of companies "that continually do business with this regime". Khamenei was quoted as saying by Khamenei.ir, referring to US President Donald Trump.

"If the government fails to find an immediate solution to the crisis. a snap presidential election will be inevitable in the coming months", said Tehran-based analyst Saeed Leylaz.

Speaking to graduating Revolutionary Guards officers, Khamenei accused the United States and Sunni Muslim Gulf Arab states that regard Shi'ite Muslim Iran as their main regional foe of trying to destabilize the government in Tehran.

But Trump may be in no hurry to embark on negotiations that might bolster Iranian clerical leaders.

The U.S. withdrawal from the landmark nuclear deal has been widely criticized, as some of its major European allies have been working to prevent the 2015 deal from falling apart. "But of course America should show flexibility as well".
