Ayatollah Khamenei: 1953 coup, not embassy takeover, starting point in US-Iran row

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has dismissed as a “lie” the US assertion that the 1979 takeover of their embassy in Tehran is what set off the ongoing dispute between Iran and the United States, saying the "starting point" of the row goes back to the CIA-orchestrated coup of 1953.
