Iran's Khamenei says U.S. provokes Saudi Arabia to deepen regional crisis

The Ayatollah added that everyone who will come into a conflict with Iran, can count on multiple strikes, and the countries of the region should not allow the United States to deceive them. "The Americans do not want to suffer the cost of confronting the Islamic Republic and the powerful nation of Iran themselves; they want to make some states in the region shoulder it".

Commenting on the global move aimed at containing Iran's regional threats, Khamenei said the Middle East wars were "the result of the American presence".

The United States, Israel, Saudi Arabia and all of its regional allies accuse Iran of sponsoring proxy groups across the Middle East in a bid to dominate the region. There is no evidence that the United States is involved, but the attack has further highlighted the tense relations between the two countries. "We've got a common challenge in Iran I think they all recognize that".

"One of the ways to confront Iran is to provoke inexperienced rulers of the region".

On Sunday, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo accused Iran of being the largest supporter of terrorism, citing the readiness of Washington to stand with Riyadh to combat terrorism.

Trump to meet crew of deadly Southwest Airlines flight
In the week following the investigation, Southwest Airlines canceled flights to perform engine inspection. Southwest apologized for the incident and gave money and travel vouchers to passengers on the flight.

Iran's Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei said that the US Department of Treasury has turned into "a war room" against Iran.

Khamenei's remarks were aired a day after Pompeo met Saudi King Salman in Riyadh on a flying visit to the region.

Relations between the United States are also at an all-time low with the Trump administration now weighing up whether to scrap the Iran nuclear deal signed by Barack Obama that ensured they would degrade the nuclear capabilities.

Khamenei stressed that the U.S. forces should leave the Middle East as they are the cause of insecurity in the region. In exchange, Iran received relief from sanctions, most of which were lifted in January 2016.
