The Leader of the Islamic Revolution has said US support for any political party is considered 'disgrace' by the Iranian nation.
Speaking to scholars in the central city of Qom on Wednesday, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said the Iranian nation should actively participate in the upcoming parliamentary elections to be held in March.
The Leader added that political parties that the US has voiced its support for should reconsider their policies and find their mistakes.
"They should think why the US seeks to back them. These parties and their members should figure their flaws that prompted the Americans to support them," Ayatollah Khamenei emphasized.
The Leader slammed certain politicians and factions for calling on international observers to monitor elections in Iran.
Inviting international election monitors is shameful and an insult to the Iranian nation, said Ayatollah Khamenei.
The Leader also cautioned that all parties should draw the lines between themselves and 'the enemy's puppets' as well as the enemy itself.
