Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei used his new year’s message to slam military intervention in Libya and accuse US President Barack Obama of lying. “The US president has sent a message that he supports (the Iranian people), he claims to be against dictatorship and a supporter of (regional) nations. But he is lying when he says some parts of the Iranian people are opposed to a nuclear accord,” he said. No one in Iran is against a deal, but demands that the removal of sanctions be part of the deal – not its outcome. “We reject the policy of capitulation imposed on us.” he said.
