TEHERAN, Iran — From the deck of Iran's new guided-missile destroyer, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei criticized the United States' military presence in the Gulf Friday and said Washington was trying to frighten Iran's Arab neighbors into buying US-made weapons.

Khamenei made the comments after being given a tour of the destroyer Jamaran, which was launched at a Gulf port Friday.

Using that backdrop of military might, Khamenei declared that the US and Israel were trying to sow divisions between Iran and Arab nations.

"The US and the Zionist regime are trying to spread divisions to distract the attention of Islamic nations from the main enemies of the Islamic world, which are the US and Israel," Khamenei said in remarks broadcast on state TV.
