"Americans are angry because the Islamic Republic of Iran has managed to thwart their plots in Lebanon, Syria, Iraq and other countries in the region", Khamenei said.

He also said that his new strategy begins with imposing tough sanctions on the IRGC, accusing Iran of "proliferation of missiles and weapons that threaten its neighbor's global trade and freedom of navigation". He warned that he might ultimately terminate the agreement. He added: "It is under continuous review and our participation can be cancelled by me as President at any time".

The deal signed in Vienna in 2015 between Iran and six world powers - the U.S., Britain, Russia, France, China, and Germany - saw internationally observed limitations to Iran's nuclear weapons program in return for the lifting of worldwide sanctions.

The Iranian senior official made the remark in an interview with euronews.

Supporters of the deal fear Trump's decision to decertify the deal could eventually unravel it, causing more tension in the crisis-hit Middle East, where Shi'ite Iran is involved in a decades long proxy war with US ally Sunni Saudi Arabia.

Turkey will Boycott Meetings with the US Ambassador

The new Trump approach of insisting that Iran's general aggression is addressed alongside the nuclear issue is a major blow to Tehran, and a major boon to Israel which has spent months claiming it is incongruous that a rogue state is getting an embrace from the West without being demanded to change.

Trump's new program covers not just nuclear matters, but also Iran's missile program, support for terror, and regional aspirations that threaten the national security interests of the USA and its allies in the Middle East. "It is now stating that it is against the elimination of the nuclear deal by the US", Rear Admiral Shamkhani added.

He called on Europe to actively oppose Mr Trump's position.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei dismissed the US President's rejection of the deal as the "rants and whoppers" of a "brute".

"The point to remember is this", he said. We welcomed this, but it is not enough to ask Trump not to rip up the agreement.
