Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Ali Khamenei on Thursday praised US President Barack Obama for recent remarks in which he warned against "beating the drums of war."

Calling Obama's statement good, and a "departure from the illusion," Khamenei nonetheless criticized the US president for his steadfast advocacy of continued sanctions against Iran. It is a mistake, he said, to think Iran can be brought to its needs.
