Iran to reciprocate U.S. measures against IRGC: Foreign Minister

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.

The administration may be getting cold feet due to the objections of key USA officials and those in the Treasury Department who view such a designation as harmful to American companies that have business interests in Iran, where the IRGC controls a majority of the economy, sources said. "It's time America be taught new lessons".

Iran's moderate president Hasan Rouhani won re-election less than five months ago after a campaign in which he called for better ties with the outside world and reform at home, openly criticizing the influence of the IRGC which he accused of backing his hardline opponent.

Velayati, a senior aide to Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, went on to accuse the USA of supporting ISIS terrorists. "We have all options on the table".

In July 2017, the United Stated imposed new sanctions against the country's ballistic missile program.

The police sergeant said the incident is still under investigation and criminal charges could be brought in the case. Investigators went to the house and said several families live there together with several children between them.

Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari made the remarks in the coordination session for celebrating the 40th anniversary of Islamic Revolution, stressing that the IRGC and Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif share similar views on Iran's defensive, political and social programs. The lingering USA sanctions have slowed Iran's re-emergence into the world economy, making global banks reluctant to take on business with Iranian firms despite the nuclear deal. In their most recent report on the designation, the US Department of State said the IRGC's Quds force was used to support terrorism throughout the Middle East. "The U.S. government constantly reviews information, through an interagency process, to evaluate potential sanctions violators for targeting under existing sanctions authorities". The rial was quoted in the free market around 40,400 to the dollar, currency exchangers in Tehran told Reuters, compared to 39,200 last week.

"Trump might say some things by the end of the week, but this should not create chaos in the market".

Government spokesman Mohammad Bagher Nobakht told reporters Tuesday the guards are "the defender of the nation" and if the United States designates the military force a terror organization "it puts itself in the camp of terrorists".

"President Obama's awful Iran deal predictably emboldened the Iranian regime to build up their military and antagonize the region", Duffy said.

He emphasized that Iran's increasing defensive capabilities would never be swayed by foreign rhetoric and said, "The policy and logic of the Islamic Republic of Iran on boosting the country's defensive power are an unquestionable issue".
