Iran’s Supreme Leader threatens West’s oil supply if U.S. acts

Iran Focus Tehran, Iran, Jun. 04 – Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei threatened on Sunday that the Islamic Republic may disrupt oil supplies in the region if the United States continued to pressure it to abandon its nuclear activities.

“If the U.S. makes a wrong move against Iran, energy flow in the region will be definitely put at serious risk”, Khamenei said in a speech aired on state television.

“You can never maintain security for [the flow of] energy in the region”, the Supreme Leader said in comments directed at the U.S.

“We are committed to our ideals and national interests and if anyone threatens our national interests it will face the Iranian nations’ wrath”.

Khamenei went on to defend Tehran’s nuclear activities.
