Iran warns U.S. against imposing new sanctions

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson arrives to make a statement in Washington

Tillerson says will give Trump several options on Iran nuclear deal

Iran warned the United States Sunday against imposing new sanctions, as well as against declaring Iran's powerful Revolutionary Guard a terrorist organization.

Chief Commander of the IRGC Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari's warning came after the White House said on Friday that US President Donald Trump is expected to announce new measures against Iran, including the prospect of additional targeted sanctions, support for terrorism, cyber operations and the designation of the IRGC as a "terrorist organization".

His remarks came few hours after IRGC top Commander Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari said imposition of new sanctions by Washington against Iran means a U.S. withdrawal from the nuclear deal, and warned that the U.S. should leave the region and stay 2,000km away from Iran if the Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA) comes into effect.

US President Donald Trump grudgingly signed the "Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act" on August 2 after the US Congress overwhelmingly approved the measure despite Trump's reservations about how it might affect his desire for improved relations with Moscow.

The new Iran policy also follows reports that Trump will soon announce a decision to "de-certify" the landmark deal on Iran's nuclear program, opening the door for the re-implementation of crippling economic sanctions.


According to the state broadcaster IRIB, lawmakers overwhelmingly approved the outlines of the bill to "counter America's terrorist and adventurist actions" as some chanted "Death to America".

Jafari's warning came two days after White House Press Secretary Huckabee Sanders said Trump will announce new United States responses to Iran's missile tests, alleged support for terrorism and cyber operations as part of his new broader Iran strategy.

"We will use any silly behavior by the Trump administration as an opportunity to advance our defensive and missile programs", Jafari said during a meeting of the IRGC strategic council.

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.

Washington says that Iran's missile program is threatening the regional and worldwide peace.
