 (JNS.org) Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Saturday described the U.S. government, which recently engaged in a level of diplomacy with Iran that was unprecedented for three decades, as “arrogant, unreliable and irrational.”

“We have no trust in them at all,” Khamenei said, The Associated Press reported.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif also slammed U.S. President Barack Obama, whose phone call with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani was the first such talk between the nations since 1979, for “insulting the Iranian nation” by telling Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that a military option is on the table for the Iranian nuclear threat.
