Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has condemned Britain as a “source of evil and misery” for the Middle East after British Prime Minister Theresa May called Iran a regional threat.

“Shamelessly, the British have recently called … Iran a threat to the region, but everyone knows that … it is the British who have always been the source of threats, corruption and misery,” the state news agency IRNA quoted Khamenei as telling participants at an Islamic unity conference in Tehran.

Khamenei also stated that policies and the actions of the British in the past two centuries a source of evil and misery for the peoples of the region.

He accused the United States and Britain of provoking conflicts among the main Sunni and Shi’ite branches of Islam and said: “The old British policy of ‘divide and conquer’ is seriously on the agenda of Islam’s enemies.”

Earlier this month, Theresa May told a summit of Gulf leaders that their countries must all, “work together to push back against Iran’s aggressive regional actions, whether in Lebanon, Iraq, Yemen, Syria or in the Gulf itself.”

“So I want to assure you that I am clear-eyed about the threat that Iran poses to the Gulf and the wider Middle East,” she told the summit in Bahrain on December 7.
