He added that the US had failed to regain its influence in Iran since the 1979 Islamic Revolution ousted the US-friendly Shah.

“America’s goal has been to re-establish the domination it had [before 1979] but it has failed. America has been defeated by the Islamic Republic over the past 40 years,” state television reported him saying.

Khamenei’s defiant words come as the Trump administration gears up to reimpose all the economic sanctions previously lifted under 2015’s nuclear deal, which involves the blacklisting of 700 Iranian individuals, including those granted relief under the previous accord. They will take effect on Monday.
