Iran's Revolutionary Guards chief warns Trump against imposing new sanctions

Jafari added that if the US imposes additional sanctions, Iran will consider the move a violation of the nuclear agreement and the safety of American soldiers will no longer be guaranteed: "If the reports are accurate, the IRGC will consider the US Army equivalent to the terrorists of ISIS around the world and especially in the Middle East".

"The Islamic Republic (of Iran) sees implementation of the Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA) as the U.S. unilateral withdrawal from the nuclear deal and as we have declared in the past too, if the USA new sanctions act comes into action, the country (the US) should transfer its regional bases to 2,000km away, that is as far as the range of Iranian missiles", General Jafari said on Sunday.

The chief of the Iran Revolutionary Guards has reportedly vowed to equate the US Army with Daesh if the US puts them on the terror group list.

Two months ago, the Iranian parliament gave approval for a bill to boost spending on Tehran's missile programme and the elite Revolutionary Guards in retaliation to new sanctions imposed by the United States.

Trump has repeatedly described the deal as "embarrassment" to the U.S. and suggested he wants to tear it up.

He warned that the Islamic Republic would move to step up its defensive military power in response to Trump's hostile stance on the action plan.

"The Americans should know that the Islamic Republic of Iran will use the opportunity provided by the Trump administration's stupid behavior towards the nuclear deal to make a leap in its conventional defense, missile and regional programs", he added.

If he does decide to maintain the nuclear deal, he is nonetheless expected to sharpen U.S. responses to Iranian missile tests, Tehran's alleged support for "terrorism" and its cyber operations.

The IRGC Commander's remarks came after the Financial Times reported that Trump is expected to designate IRGC as a terrorist organization next week as part of a new hardline strategy against the Islamic Republic.

During a meeting on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly last month, Iranian diplomats told the USA and others that "it could discuss the missile program to remove concerns", an Iranian source with knowledge of the meeting told Reuters.
