TEHRAN (AP) — Iranian university students in a meeting with Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei offered harsh criticism of the country’s direction, local media reported Tuesday, an unusually frank discussion showing the concerns many feel over the Trump administration’s pullout from the nuclear deal with Tehran and Iran’s battered economy.

One student in particular offered a list of problems confronting Iran and directly asked Khamenei how he would respond to them.

While concerns regularly come up during the annual audiences that Khamenei holds during Ramazan, the fact that these criticisms were publicised in Iran’s tightly controlled media is telling.

Already, farmers and truck drivers have been protesting and on strike in the country.
