FILE PHOTO: Iran's Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei
The people of Iran face a sensitive time because of the threat from America and economic problems, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said in a speech broadcast by state television on Thursday.

Tension between Iran and the United States has ramped up after U.S. President Donald Trump withdrew from a multilateral nuclear deal with the Islamic Republic in May and reimposed sanctions.

Khameini made the comments in an address to the Basij militia and top Revolutionary Guards leaders.
