Iran warns USA against new sanctions

Donald Trump addresses United Nations General Assembly at the UN in New York on Sept. 19. Defenders of the Iran nuclear deal argue that Trump's team has not thought about how his threats to Tehran especially since Iran has held up its end of the

"If the news is correct about the stupidity of the American government in considering the Revolutionary Guards a terrorist group, then the Revolutionary Guards will consider the American army to be like Islamic State all around the world, particularly in the Middle East", Jafari said.

Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Commander Mohammad Ali Jafari criticized Washington Sunday amid the reports about US President Donald Trump's plan to place additional sanctions on Tehran and designate the IRGC a terrorist group.

A top military commander said Iran would never be compelled by the USA sanctions to relinquish its regional role and they will only strengthen its resolve to push ahead with its regional operations and defensive missile program.

Addressing a group of senior IRGC commanders on Sunday, General Jafari pointed to the "Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act", which was signed into law by Trump in August and allows the president to impose fresh sanctions against Tehran, and said, "If the U.S. administration implements the CAATSA, the Islamic Republic of Iran will view it as Washington's unilateral withdrawal from the nuclear deal".

The law imposed fresh sanctions on Russia, Iran and North Korea over issues, such as Iran's ballistic missiles program, North Korea's nuclear weapons development and alleged efforts by Russia to interfere in the 2016 United States election, which Moscow denies.

Iran's ballistic missile program has triggered the discontent and concerns of other states, in particular, the United States due to its possible links to the Iranian nuclear program.

Iran has denounced the sanctions as a breach of the 2015 nuclear deal and retaliated with a parliamentary bill to "counter America's terrorist and adventurist actions".

Trump has until October 15 to recertify the deal.

IRGC commander said America's behavior proves that Iran can't rely on JCPOA to devise its foreign relations, adding that "Americans should know that Iran will take advantage of Trump's ridiculous treatment of JCPOA to advance missile, regional and defensive programs".

US President Donald Trump will announce new US responses to Iran's missile tests, support for "terrorism" and cyber operations as part of his new Iran strategy, the White House said on Friday.

Tehran has warned it may begin to equate USA forces to Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) if a report is true that Washington will include the elite wing of the Iranian Army in the list of terrorist organizations.
