Iran supreme leader Khamenei says Trump talking nonsense

The United States has targeted Iran in UN Security Council!

Rouhani, despite criticizing Trump's speech, said Iran will continue to adhere to the agreement.

Khamenei argued that the "US would once again taste defeat at the hands of the Iranian nation". Otherwise, he says he will pull out of the deal.

Haley cited a long list of Iranian violations, including threatening freedom of navigation in the Gulf, cyberattacks, imprisonment of journalists and other foreigners, and abuses of its people by persecuting some religions and imprisoning gays and lesbians.

"Or to ask why Iran has missiles - well, why do you have missiles?"

Tillerson said the United States wants to fix problems in the agreement, but that Trump is "not particularly optimistic" about the chances.

"If North Korea's missile trials are wrong, n same rules are not valid for Iran and are being tolerated", said Haley, who criticised Iran for missile trials.

Turning to Iran, Nebenzia warned that "attempts to dismantle the architecture of the agreement on the Iranian nuclear program will lead to a negative reaction in the Middle East and beyond".

"Judging Iran by the narrow confines of the nuclear deal misses the true nature of the threat", Haley stressed.

Trump's decision has been sharply criticized by Washington's partners in the deal - France, Britain, China, and Russian Federation - which sit on the Security Council as permanent members along with the United States.

Trump called the new approach part of a new strategy to deal with what he called the Iranian "dictatorship", even though Iran has a government that is more democratic than some US allies in the region, such as Saudi Arabia.

So far, most major Jewish groups in the US are taking a cautious approach to this complex situation.

Also, International Monterey Fund (IMF) Managing Director Christine Lagarde said the IMF sees no reason to change its policy on granting loans to Iran despite USA pressures and bans.

"We also look to Iran to engage in constructive dialogue to stop destabilizing actions and work toward negotiated solutions", he said. If the USA tears up the deal, we will shred it...

Iran's highest authority also said Tehran was determined to continue its disputed ballistic missile programme despite the pressure from Europe and the United States to suspend it. Tehran has defended the move, saying the weapons are exclusively for defensive purposes. And there's the matter of breaking an global agreement and alienating our allies.

President Trump unveiled a sweeping and aggressive new policy toward Iran on Friday, saying he will not re-certify the nuclear deal signed in 2015 and calling for a variety of new sanctions against the government in Tehran.

The supreme leader went on to urge the European nations that are also signatories to the agreement "to stand up against the U.S. measures" such as sanctions, which "they anticipate to emerge from Congress".

The Trump administration is concerned with more than just the nuclear agreement, Tillerson said.

The tougher United States stance toward Iran provides an opportunity for the council to show that it will defend its resolutions and "change its policy toward the Iranian regime", she said.
