The Associated Press reported that Ayatollah Khamenei, regarding the murder of George Floyd, had criticized Washington for pursuing deceptive human rights policies.

Addressing the United States, Ayatollah Khamenei said: "They are openly killing people and they are not apologizing while claiming to protect human rights."

The Associated Press also quoted Leader of the Islamic Revolution as saying: "We cannot breathe." Ayatollah Khamenei said, "This is nothing new." This is the nature of America; That's what Americans have done all over the world.
