The United States has always been the "loser" in confrontation with Iran over the past four decades, Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on Saturday, official IRNA news agency reported.

Over the past 40 years, the United States has resorted to a variety of means, including the military and economic warfare, to challenge Iran's independence, Khamenei was quoted as saying.

"The enemy (United States) sought to restore its dominance (over Iran), but it failed," he said.

The remarks by Iran's top leader come a day after Washington announced the return of its full-scale sanctions on sectors, including banking, shipping and energy, against Tehran on Friday.
