The deputy speaker of the Iranian Parliament, Mohammad Hassan Abutorabi-Fard, said that Iran had learned from the nuclear negotiations that it had a strong hand to play. "Today, we can speak to the U.S. and its allies with the tone of power," he said in remarks quoted by the Fars news agency. "A lesson can be taken from the recent nuclear talks that, for various reasons, the U.S. is not reliable."..
Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said on Tuesday…"In the nuclear issue, America and colonial European countries got together and did their best to bring the Islamic Republic to its knees, but they could not do so — and they will not be able to do so," Mr. Khamenei's personal website quoted him as saying.'
