Supreme Leader: Iran Open to Criticism

“If sometimes we have said there should be no opposition to the country’s officials, this does not mean there should be no criticism,” Khamenei said. “This applies to the leadership too.”

“I have supported (previous) governments. I support this government too. This also does not mean that I approve of every detail of the work that is being done,” the Leader said.
