Supreme leader says Iran can damage interests of ''any invader''
In comments directed at Washington, Iran's supreme leader warned Monday that his country can damage the interests of any invader, state-run Tehran television reported.
"The United States says that we have endangered their interests," Ayatollah Ali Khamenei told a crowd of thousands on a visit to the city of Hamedan in western Iran. "If anyone invades our nation, we will jeopardize their interests around the world," Khamenei warned.
Khamenei arrived Monday morning in Hamedan, which is located 337 km west of the capital Tehran, for the first time in his present capacity as Supreme Leader. According to IRNA, the Iranian leader was scheduled to inaugurate a number of infrastructure projects in the province. (albawaba.com)
