Iran warns U.S. against imposing new sanctions

Iran reportedly open to talking about ballistic missile arsenal

In the part that pertains to Iran (also known as Countering Iran's Destabilizing Actions Act or CIDAA), the sanctions act focuses on punishments specifically addressed at the IRGC.

The head of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps warned the United States on Sunday that USA military forces in the region could face retaliation if Washington designates the IRGC a terrorist group and imposes fresh sanctions.

Major General Jaafari finally warned that any fresh U.S. sanctions on Iran would ruin any chance of interaction forever, saying the new sanctions, together with the United States behavior towards the JCPOA, lay bare that the USA employs negotiations as a tool to press ahead with pressures and hostility, not to interact or solve the issues.

Addressing a group of senior IRGC commanders on Sunday, General Jafari pointed to the "Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act", which was signed into law by Trump in August and allows the president to impose fresh sanctions against Tehran, and said, "If the United States administration implements the CAATSA, the Islamic Republic of Iran will view it as Washington's unilateral withdrawal from the nuclear deal".

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said later on Friday that Trump and his team have been "looking at all of the bad behaviour of Iran" including its nuclear programme, missile testing, cyberattacks, destabilisation of the region and state sponsorship of terrorism.

Netflix raises prices for new and current United States subscribers
Since then, however, Netflix has continued to add large amounts of new subscribers both in the US and internationally. Stranger Things avoiding a sophomore slump in it's much- anticipated second season wouldn't hurt either.

"The Islamic Republic intends to resolve the regional issues at a place other than the negotiating table".

Trump has until October 15 to recertify the deal.

"America's conduct proved that we can not develop our foreign relations by exclusively relying on JCPOA", Jafari said, using an abbreviation that stands for the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, the official name of the accord.

But Trump is expected to announce new measures against Iran, including the prospect of additional targeted sanctions, the designation of the IRGC as a terrorist organization and the adoption of a tougher stance on Iranian proxies in Syria, Iraq and Yemen, according to a person briefed on the matter.

"We will use any silly behavior by the Trump administration as an opportunity to advance our defensive and missile programs", Jafari said during a meeting of the IRGC strategic council.
