Gov't Spokesman: US Would Aid Terror by Targeting IRGC

The remarks by Rouhani comes as President Donald Trump is expected to declare this week the withdrawal of the US from the nuclear agreement, officially called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

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.

Iran warned the United States against designating its Revolutionary Guards Corp as a terrorist group and said US regional military bases would be at risk if further sanctions were passed, state media reported on Sunday.

"We are not afraid of the USA measures, " Rouhani said in the weekly cabinet meeting.

Analysts say such a move would have a very limited impact on the Guards, who are already subject to a wide range of sanctions.

The Iranian foreign minister warned that in case of such a move, the USA would become more isolated and despicable among the Iranian people.

If Trump refuses to certify, the Congress will have 60 days to decide whether to restore the sanctions against the Islamic Republic that the USA has agreed to waive under the deal. "It's time America be taught new lessons".

"It seems the Trump administration understands only swear words, and needs some shocks to understand the new meaning of power in the world", Iranian armed forces spokesman Masoud Jazayeri, who is also a Revolutionary Guards commander, said. "All options are on the table", he said. "All options are on the table", Ali Akbar Velayati, senior adviser to Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei said on Tuesday, Reuters reports citing Isna news agency.

The Iranian nuclear deal, backed by European countries, China and Russian Federation, lifted broad worldwide sanctions over Iran's nuclear program that had been tightened during the Obama years and had caused severe damage to Iran's economy. He is also expected to designate the IRGC as a terrorist organization.

Iran's rial has dropped against the US dollar in recent days in a sign of concern about Trump's policy.

Remaining committed to the deal is tantamount to saving their own face, the Iranian president said. Zarif, the Iranian foreign minister, said Iran purposefully excluded military capabilities from the pact, as "it is not intended as leverage or a bargaining chip in future negotiations".
