Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said, “The nuclear deal is a means, not the goal, and if we come to this conclusion that it does not serve our national interests, we can abandon it,” his official website quoted him as saying on Wednesday. He  also said  that Tehran should “give up hope” on Europe to save the deal.
