Ali Khamenei was televised today on state television addressing a group of environmental officials and activists at his residence in central Tehran. He appeared to be comfortable and healthy in the footage amidst rumors of being in critical condition and death.
With Iran in the middle of negotiations on its nuclear program with the world's superpowers and Ayatollah Ali Khamenei having the final say in all Iran matters, it is imperative that Ali Khamenei is in stable health.
Iran’s former deputy foreign minister Sadeq Kharrazi, said rumours spread about Mr Khamenei’s health were released by those seeking to undermine the nuclear talks and weaken Iran’s position.
“The intention behind spreading such lies is to demoralise Iran’s negotiators and the Iranian people and overshadow Iran’s successful policy in fighting ISIS in Iraq and Syria,” he said in comments widely published on Sunday in Iranian newspapers.
