The supreme leader's comments suggest Iran is impatient with Europe's slow response to save the nuclear accord. Economic troubles are piling pressure on President Hassan Rouhani.
By forcing parliament to review a law, the supreme leader has made it clear that he is the real decision-maker and neither parliament nor government can function the way they are supposed to, says Jamshid Barzegar.
Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, has given the EU extensive conditions if Iran is to stick to the nuclear deal. Yet he is nothing more than a squeaking mouse, writes Jamshid Barzegar.
Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Iran would not talk with the United States. In comments directed at President Rouhani, he said Iran's economic troubles were not only the result of sanctions, but also economic mismanagement.
