Tehran: Iran's state TV says the country's supreme leader has told Pakistan's president that the United States is Pakistan's real enemy.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei spoke on Sunday during a meeting with Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari. It was Zardari's second visit to Iran in less than a month.

Khamenei has the final say on all state matters in Iran. The US-Pakistan relationship has been on a downward spiral since the May 2 US raid that killed al-Qaida chief Osama bin Laden in a Pakistani Garrison town.

Pakistani leaders have protested the unilateral raid by kicking out many American military trainers and asking the US to reduce its footprint in the country.
