The United States is still fundamentally hostile to Iran and its policies have undermined the benefits of sanctions relief, the Islamic Republic's hard-line leader said Sunday, warning Iranians not to trust their old enemy. Ringing in a new Iranian year at a televised rally in the Shiite holy city of Mashhad, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said fear of U.S. regulations was keeping big foreign companies, particularly in the financial sector, away from Iran. That, Khamenei said, was a sign that Iran should be economically self-reliant because the U.S. and its allies were not reliable partners.The Central Bank of Iran has also said remaining U.S. sanctions have scared off European firms.
