Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has called on Iranian authorities not to back down in the face of the United States’ ever-increasing demands.

Ayatollah Khamenei made the remarks on Wednesday in a meeting with a group of top university students and members of Iran’s National Elites Foundation.

“We have, time and again, told [Iranian authorities] that if surrender in the nuclear [case], they (Americans) will bring up the issue of the missile.

If you back down farther, they will pick on the issue of [Iran’s] support for resistance,” Ayatollah Khamenei asserted.

“If you keep backing down even further, they will bring up [the issue of] human rights.

Then, if you accept their standards, they will go for eliminating the religious standards in [our] government,” the Leader added.
