Ayatollah Khamenei also said on Friday that European states have failed to salvage the country's 2015 nuclear deal with major powers from which the United States has already withdrawn.

Relations between Tehran and Washington have deteriorated since 2018 when US President Donald Trump abandoned Iran's 2015 nuclear deal with six powers, under which Tehran agreed to curtail its nuclear programme in return for the lifting of most global sanctions.

Decades-old tensions between Tehran and Washington have soared in the past year or so, with the sworn enemies twice appearing to come to the brink of war.

Khamenei said in a televised address.

"But the smart Iranian has made the best use of this attack, this animosity and using sanctions as a means to increase national self-reliance".

After abandoning the accord, the United States reimposed sanctions on Iran's vital oil exports and its access to the worldwide banking system, and pressured allies and rivals alike to fall in line.

"This has caused the country's economy to be naturally less reliant on oil", Khamenei said, casting the development in a positive light.

Khamenei said Western "think-tanks admit that the maximum pressure (policy) of sanctions and United States force has not succeeded". Pettersson continued to talk about the Trump tweet but notably did not say if a "more context" notice was put up regarding Khamenei's repeated calls for genocide against Israel and the Jews. "Now he wants to use (talks with Iran) for the (November 3 United States presidential) election".

"At the negotiating table, America wants us to abandon our nuclear industry altogether, reduce our defence capabilities and relinquish our regional influence", he stated.

Authorities have said street protests would be dealt with "decisively", and even gave three men involved in the demonstrations death sentences, accusing them "participation in vandalism and arson with the intent to confront and engage in war with the Islamic Republic of Iran".

Since 2018, when US President Donald Trump pulled out of the deal and reimposed sanctions on Teheran, the European parties to the agreement have intensified efforts to save it by shielding Iran's economy from US penalties.
