Ayatollah Khamenei has said that the issue of oil has been used to exert pressure on countries that are independent from the United States and to impose the current problems on such countries as well.

“Rational resistance and steadfastness along with prudence in the face of pressure will definitely be followed by victory,” Ayatollah Khamenei said in a meeting with Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro in the Iranian capital of Tehran on Saturday; Press TV reported.

The Leader added that the US plots and policies on the West Asian countries have failed.

Ayatollah Khamenei said the issue of oil has been used to impose the current problems on independent countries.

“In the past when some Muslim countries moved to counter the Zionist regime (of Israel) by halting the oil [supply], Westerners made hue and cry under the pretext of the political use of oil, but unfortunately the same countries, together with some members of OPEC (the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries) and some states in our region which themselves are suffering from such policies, are now using oil as a weapon in full coordination with the US policies,” the Leader stated.

It is possible to overcome such conspiracies and hostilities by pursuing rational policies and improving cooperation, Ayatollah Khamenei added.

Ayatollah Khamenei also pointed to the failed US policies in the region and said, “Some think that the US cannot be defeated. This is while this imagination is a big mistake.” The Leader added that Washington’s continuous mistakes over the past 15 years have put it into a very deplorable situation in the region.
