TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has harshly criticized U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May's recent comments about Iran posing a threat to the region.

In remarks published on his website Saturday, Khamenei called the U.K "a source of evil and misery for the peoples of the region" for the past two centuries.

Earlier this month, 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."
