  • Iran Warns US Over Potential Terror Designation of Its Guards

The former reality television host is also expected to designate Iran's most powerful security force, the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corp, as a terrorist organization as part of a new Iran strategy.

Trump is also expected to designate the IRGC as a terrorist organization, as he rolls out a broader, more hawkish United States strategy on Iran. The U.S. government has sanctioned individuals and entities with ties to the Guard in the past, including a special forces unit in 2007. Jafari says the USA would have to move its military bases in the region outside the 1,250-mile range of the Revolutionary Guards' missiles.

On Monday night, there was the rare sight of Iran's urbane, globe-trotting foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, alongside Guards commander Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari appearing together for reporters on the sidelines of a conference in Tehran. "Iran's reaction would be firm, decisive, and crushing, and the U.S. should bear all its consequences", the Guardian quotes ministry spokesperson Bahram Qasemi as saying Monday.

Iranian authorities, who have said Tehran would not be the first to violate the accord, are publicly debating how they will respond if the Trump administration designates the Revolutionary Guards as a terrorist organization.

"We are all integrated and standing in the same line", he underlined, adding that the resistant nation of Iran will stand against plots.

He added that the United States approaches have frustrated people across the world, saying, "It is time to teach the United States new lessons".

Trump is reportedly planning to "decertify" on October 15 the nuclear agreement, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), reached between Iran and the P5+1 group of countries in 2015.

If Trump declines to certify the Iran deal, USA congressional leaders would have 60 days to decide whether to reimpose sanctions on Tehran suspended under the agreement.

His comments come just 24 hours after Iran threatened the U.S. with a "firm, decisive and crushing" response to sanctions. "It's time America be taught new lessons".

Iran's nuclear deal with world major powers was a "big test" for all signatories and other states in the world, as keeping promise is the base of world trust in a state, Iran's President Hassan Rouhani said on Wednesday, APA reported citing IRNA.
