Earlier in the evening, Mr Trump has said they would be discussing the most pressing military issues facing the country, including tensions with North Korea and Iran.

Citing "people briefed" on the matter, the Washington Post reports Trump is expected to deliver a speech, possibly on October 12, laying out his administration's new Iranian policy.

He also used the meeting to make clear his continued displeasure with Iran - accusing the country of "breaking the spirit" of the worldwide agreement signed in 2015 aimed at curbing the country's nuclear programme.

USA Donald Trump's president, in 2015, was prepared to cancel nuclear deal signed with Iranduring period of US President Barack Obama.

The official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Trump is also expected to roll out a broader USA strategy on Iran that would be more confrontational. If he argues that Iran is not in compliance, that could cause an American withdrawal from the worldwide pact.

On Wednesday, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson denied reports of calling Trump a "moron" and said that he never considered resigning from his post.

During a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing, Mattis was asked whether he believed it was now in the United States national security interest to remain in the agreement.

"Maybe it's the calm before the storm", POTUS replied.

"What's storm, Mr. president?" reporters asked.

President Donald Trump cryptically suggested Thursday that a meeting with senior military leaders was "the calm before the storm".

The White House is outright refusing to explain the President's statement.

The plan is for "harsh sanctions" against the IRGC, Iran's most powerful security organization which also dominates significant areas of the Iranian economy.

Kicking the decision to Congress will force lawmakers to decide whether to impose fresh sanctions on Iran's nuclear ambitions but doing so will end the nuclear agreement.
