Top Senator: This Is How Trump Should Tear Up The Iran Deal

Speaking today during a broadcast of a cabinet meeting, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani warned that the current United States bill aiming to impose new sanctions against them for their conventional missile program would be met with a "reciprocal" response.

On Tuesday, the US House of Representatives voted 419-3 in favor of a bill imposing new sanctions on Iran over its missile program and alleged destabilizing role in the Middle East.

Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi said on Wednesday that Tehran will respond "firmly" to the U.S. House's move in approving new sanctions against Iran, describing the move as a "clear hostile action".

According to terms of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action - the official name for the nuclear deal - the obliged to implement the agreement with "good intention" and in a "constructive atmosphere" and avoid taking any action that prevent a successful implementation of the accord, Araqchi stated.

The Iranian parliament's national security and foreign affairs committee said it would hold an extraordinary session on Saturday to discuss its response.

President Trump agreed on July 18 to certify that Iran is complying with the nuclear agreement.

But it also said the regime was not embracing the "spirit" of the agreement, and coupled the certification with the announcement of new sanctions against individuals and entities for supporting Iran's ballistic missile program and the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).

"You would have thought when that deal was made by Secretary [of State John] Kerry - maybe the worst negotiator I've ever seen - you would have thought that Iran would have said, 'Thank you, United States".

The House action escalated tensions between Iran and the USA, which this month recertified the Islamic Republic's compliance with the nuclear deal even as Trump continued to call it the "worst deal" he has ever seen.

"We'll talk about the subject in 90 days but I would be surprised if they were in compliance", he told WSJ. And while onerous sanctions on Iran were lifted in exchange for its curtailment of its nuclear program, many American restrictions exist, scaring away investors. But the Trump administration argues the nuclear deal was intended, in part, to provide Iran with a fresh start in the global community, in which it has operated as a rogue state since its Islamic revolution in 1979.
