DUBAI - Iran's Supreme Leader hit out on Thursday at a letter by US Republican senators threatening to undo any nuclear deal between Washington and Tehran, saying he was worried because the United States was known for "backstabbing", Mehr news agency reported.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei added in a speech to senior clerics that whenever negotiators made progress, the Americans became "harsher, tougher and coarser", Mehr reported.

He added that a speech to Congress this month by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tehran's nuclear program  was "risible."
