Ayatollah Ali KhameneiIran’s supreme leader, says despite the nuclear deal was reached, Iran still criticizes U.S. policies in the Middle East and Iran's position towards the U.S. will not be changed. He says the nuclear deal was just an "exception for the rule". 

"Whether the deal is approved or disapproved, we will never stop supporting our friends in the region and the people of Palestine, Yemen, Syria, Iraq, Bahrain and Lebanon. Even after this deal our policy towards the arrogant U.S. will not change," he said.

"We have repeatedly said we don't negotiate with the US on regional or international affairs; not even on bilateral issues. There are some exceptions like the nuclear program that we negotiated with [the] Americans to serve our interests. US policies in the region are diametrically opposed with Iran's policies," the country’s supreme leader added.

Khamenei also stated that Iran is against any kind of war or agression, but if needed he promised that Washington will be humiliated. 

The nuclear deal was agreed on Tuesday, and it stated that sanctions against Iran would be removed step-by-step, if the country accepts long-term curbs on its nuclear program.
