Iran Guard chief warns USA against imposing new sanctions

  • Iran reportedly open to talking about ballistic missile arsenal

The chief of Iran's powerful Revolutionary Guard said Sunday the USA should move its military bases farther from Iran's borders if it imposes new sanctions against Tehran, the official IRNA news reported.

Jafari added that if the US imposes additional sanctions, Iran will consider the move a violation of the nuclear agreement and the safety of American soldiers will no longer be guaranteed: "If the reports are accurate, the IRGC will consider the US Army equivalent to the terrorists of ISIS around the world and especially in the Middle East".

Trump also reportedly intends to decertify the Iranian nuclear deal struck in 2015, but he will not impose wide-ranging sanctions, preferring instead just to target the IRGC with sanctions.

According to the state broadcaster IRIB, lawmakers overwhelmingly approved the outlines of the bill to "counter America's terrorist and adventurist actions" as some chanted "Death to America".

Trump has until October 15 to recertify the deal.

He said any new U.S. sanctions would ruin the chances for any kind of interaction "forever".

ISIS releases recording of leader al-Baghdadi
It was not clear when the message, released by the ISIS-affiliated Al-Furqan media group, was recorded. The United States has offered a $25 million bounty for information that would locate Baghdadi.

"The Americans need to know that we will use the Trump administration's stupid conduct as an opportunity to advance our conventional missile program", he added.

The White House announced Friday that Trump will announce in the coming days tough new measures for responding to Iran's "bad behavior", including responses to Tehran's ballistic missile tests, support for terrorist groups throughout the Middle East, and cyber operations.

Jafari also warned that if the United States declared the Guard a terrorist group, Iran would give the U.S. army the same label.

The Quds Force, the IRGC's foreign espionage and paramilitary wing, and individuals and entities associated with the IRGC are on the United States list of foreign terrorist organisations, but the organisation as a whole is not.

The IRGC Commander's remarks came after the Financial Times reported that Trump is expected to designate IRGC as a terrorist organization next week as part of a new hardline strategy against the Islamic Republic.

"During their meeting on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly last month, Iran told [world powers] that it could discuss the missile program to remove concerns", an Iranian source told Reuters.
