US imposes 'tough sanctions' on Iran Revolutionary Guard : Trump

US President Donald Trump
US President Donald Trump is announcing that the nuclear agreement with Iran no longer serves US national security interests and is deferring to Congress the decision on whether to re-impose sanctions against Tehran that were suspended as part of the deal.

"I have ordered a complete strategic review of our policy toward the rogue regime in Iran. That review is now complete," he said.

The Iran deal "was one of the worst and most one-sided transactions the United States has ever entered into,” Trump added.

Trump wants a “more confrontational” approach to Iran, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Friday. While the US will remain party to the internationally negotiated pact, the decision to decertify Iran’s compliance opens up avenues for Congress and Treasury to impose new US sanctions on Tehran not related to the nuclear program.

The US cannot evade its responsibilities under the 2015 nuclear pact, said Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi, as quoted by Iranian media ahead of Trump’s announcement. However, he added that Iran will continue to expand its defensive power, including its ballistic missile program, which is not part of the agreement.

"Iran will strongly respond to any action against its military forces, including the Revolutionary Guards Corps," Qasemi said, according Iranian media quoted by Reuters.
