Iran’s top leader distanced himself on Monday from the nuclear agreement reached with major powers a year ago, accusing the United States of failing to honor pledges in the accord and citing “the futility of negotiations with the Americans.”

In blunt remarks prominently featured in Iran’s state news media, the senior leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said the talks that led to the nuclear agreement in July 2015 should be regarded as an instructive lesson on the dangers posed by interactions with governments he regards as enemies.

Ayatollah Khamenei, who has the final word on Iran’s national security and other vital issues, did not suggest that he wanted to abandon the agreement, which took effect in January and sharply limited Iran’s nuclear activities in exchange for the lifting of many Western economic sanctions.

But his remarks indicated that he was hedging against any unraveling of the agreement. He had endorsed the accord despite many of his own public warnings of interactions with the United States.

“Today, even the diplomatic officials and those who were present in the negotiations reiterate the fact that the U.S. is breaching its promises, and while speaking softly and sweetly, is busy obstructing and damaging Iran’s economic relations with other countries,” Ayatollah Khamenei said in a translation reported by Press TV, an official Iranian English-language news site.

He said the agreement, known officially as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, “once again proved the futility of negotiations with the Americans, their lack of commitment to their promises and the necessity of distrust of U.S. pledges.”

If he really wants the outside world to invest into Iran, his best move would certainly be abdication and a transfer of power to a stable secular government. It would still be liable to deterioration along the lines of what we are seeing in Turkey, but for a start, it might just work.

Try clicking on the link, its that blue print at the bottom with a line under it.

"Ayatollah Khamenei, who has the final word on Iran’s national security and other vital issues, did not suggest that he wanted to abandon the agreement.... “He is pressing the West to move more quickly on investing in Iran, so that Iranians feel the deal helping their economy,”"

Iran doesn't give a rat's ass about the nuclear agreement, they did couple missiles experiments and they don't cooperate with IAEA as the agency reported. There is a huge failure about the supervision on Iran nuclear plan which the US and others will have to address and find solutions for it.

You think the nuclear deal is "falling apart" because Ayatollah Khamenei did not suggest that he wanted to abandon the agreement?

This is definitely not about the agreement falling apart. It looks like Khamenei was too optimistic about foreign investment when the sanctions were lifted. It turns out that nobody wants to touch Iran.

This is just the beginning IMO. This will continue to deteriorate. Iran never intended to abide by the terms of the agreement, Kerry and Obama fell for it.

“once again proved the futility of negotiations with the Americans, their lack of commitment to their promises and the necessity of distrust of U.S. pledges.”

This is not pressing the West to move more quickly on investing in Iran, so that Iranians feel the deal helping their economy. It is laying the ground work to back out of the deal.

I suspect your silly prediction will not come true because despite your opinion that "they never intended to abide by the agreement" they have abided by the agreement.

"Iran has met its initial obligations under the nuclear agreement that it struck with the United States and its international negotiating partners (P5+1). In a new report, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) certified that Iran has implemented the necessary reductions to its nuclear program and has granted the IAEA the access necessary to verify the agreement. " Factsheet: Implementation of Iran Nuclear Deal | The Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation

"Iran is complying so far with the July 2015 landmark nuclear deal with major powers, a report from the UN atomic watchdog seen by AFP showed on Friday." Iran complying with nuclear deal: UN watchdog


“once again proved the futility of negotiations with the Americans, their lack of commitment to their promises and the necessity of distrust of U.S. pledges.”

Actually thats exactly what it is. He is saying that the US is not living up the commitment of repealing economic sanctions on his country...

And two paragraphs up from what you just quoted here: "But his remarks indicated that he was hedging against any unraveling of the agreement. He had endorsed the accord despite many of his own public warnings of interactions with the United States."
-He is against undoing the agreement
-Despite his rhetoric the history has shown us that he still endorses the agreement

Quite true, but you know that'll never happen. He isn't going to just give away his power.

I don't see how the Persians will get rid of the autocrats without a revolution. It is possible though.
