  • Iran: Trump Decision Could Bring 'Crushing' Response

"Of course some measures have been planned which we will announce in due time", he added.

Jafari went on to add that Zarif's comments on Iran's position include defensive and security aspects as well, however our discourses and manner of speech are different.

Therefore, he added, the United States has every right to be angry with the IRGC.

"The era of the United States presence and dominance over the West Asia [region] is over", Jazayeri pointed out.

By October 15, Trump is scheduled to recertify the Iranian nuclear agreement, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), which limits Iran's nuclear program for 15 years in exchange for easing the pre-existing sanctions.

Neither the State Department or White House would confirm to the Free Beacon plans to follow through with this designation, prompting speculation that the process may be held up over objections by Obama-era holdovers in the Trump administration who view the move as a shot at dismantling the former president's nuclear deal.

If the USA designates Iran's Revolutionary Guards as a terrorist organization-as reports state President Trump is likely to do-it would be a "strategic mistake", according to Iran's foreign ministry.

It is widely expected that Trump will not recertify Iran, saying it is no longer in the U.S. national interest, giving Congress 60 days to decide whether to reimpose sanctions. By potentially re-imposing the nuclear-related bans, the USA would be stopping the implementation of major obligations under the agreement, which would practically equal a pullout even if an official declaration of withdrawal was not released.

The White House plans to unveil its "overall Iran strategy" this week, ending the mystery as to whether U.S. President Donald Trump will decertify an worldwide deal curbing Tehran's nuclear program, according to officials.

"Unlike the pre-deal era when the whole world was united against Iran, the world is now united against the United States, particularly so because Trump's measures regarding other worldwide agreements has sparked global opposition", former Iranian diplomat Javid Ghorban Oghli said in an op-ed written for pro-reform Shargh Daily.

Reuters reports the threats continued from Mohammad Ali Jafari, the commander of the Revolutionary Guards, who said such a decision would show "the stupidity of the American government" and would force the Revolutionary Guards to "consider the American army to be like [the] Islamic State".

"Through its support for the nations of Iraq, Syria and Lebanon, the Guards has humiliated Daesh and that is why [Americans] are angry", Rouhani said.

President Trump has called the agreement the worst deal the United States has ever entered.

IAEA Chief Yukiya Amano, speaking in an event in Rome on Monday, also affirmed Iran's commitment to the nuclear deal.
