US President Donald Trump on Monday warned Iran against any misadventure. "We’ll see what happens with Iran. If they do anything, it would be a very bad mistake," Trump told reporters at his Oval Office of the White House. He was responding to questions on US military build-up against Iran and if he was at war with Tehran.
“I’m hearing little stories about Iran. If they do anything, they will suffer greatly. We’ll see what happens with Iran,” Trump said, as his Secretary of State Mike Pompeo stopped in Brussels to brief NATO allies on the latest developments with regard to Iran.
Earlier, the deputy speaker of the Iran parliament said, Iran’s move to stop respecting some of the agreed limits on its nuclear deal proves that it is “not in a position of weakness”. “The timely decision of the Islamic republic regarding its commitments in the (nuclear deal) showed that Iran is not in a position of weakness,” said Ali Mottahari.
Tehran announced Wednesday that it would stop respecting some of the curbs on its nuclear activities imposed under the landmark 2015 deal with world powers.
Earlier, Iran’s top commander had said that Tehran will not talk with the United States. This came a day after President Donald Trump said he’d like Iranian leaders to “call me.” Trump had told reporters, “What I would like to see with Iran, I would like to see them call me.”
There will be no negotiations with America,” Iranian media quoted Gen Yadollah Javani as saying. The Iranian commander also claimed the US would not dare take military action against Iran.
President Hassan Rouhani had said that Iran would no longer implement parts of the deal and threatened to go further if the remaining members of the pact failed to deliver sanctions relief to counterbalance Trump's renewed assault on the Iranian economy within 60 days.
