Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei emphasised that “no matter who wins the U.S. elections, it won’t affect our policy toward the U.S. Some people talk about what will happen if this or that one is elected. Yes, certain events may happen but they don’t concern us. Our policy is calculated and clear”. Khamenei also described as “treacherous [and] contemptible” the normalisation of relations with Israel by several regional countries, maintaining that “Palestine will be free, while the bogus Zionist regime [ie, Israel] will perish”.
