"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.

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".
