“Everything that comes out of Washington is just a sheer lie. There is nothing that can be believed that comes out of Washington, when it does not serve their interests,” he added.

What the American authorities need is “a pretext probably to go to war” with Iran; so, “they are lying about the Islamic Republic not adhering to the conditions of the nuclear agreement,” he argued.

“It is a demonization of Iran as they are doing the same thing with Russia, China and every country that is not following their dictate", he noted.

Someone “who is behind all this (anti-Iran policies) is Trump’s very close friend [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu, the commentator said.
