Iran will consider the U.S. army as an extremist group “Islamic state” (IG, is prohibited in Russia), if the U.S. recognizes as a terrorist organization the Islamic revolutionary guards Corps (IRGC). This was stated by commander of the IRGC General Mohammad Ali Jafari, reports Reuters.

Previously on 8 October President of the United States Donald trump has accused Iran of support of the DPRK. “I am sure that Iran is funding North Korea, I’m sure that Iran trades with Pyongyang, I’m sure they do business with North Korea, and this is absolutely unacceptable,” said trump.

The American leader also pointed out that, in his opinion, Iran violates the provisions of the agreement on the settlement of the Iranian nuclear problem. In addition, trump blamed Tehran for creating “problems” in the middle East. “Iran is a bad player, and to be treated like a bad player,” added the US President.

At the end of last week, October 4, the Washington Post reported that trump is going to announce the cancellation of the nuclear deal with Iran. The newspaper’s sources indicate that the American leader said a deal does not meet the national interests of the United States. According to The Washington Post, such a development will lead to the return to the policy of sanctions against Iran.

The agreement on the settlement of the longstanding problem of the Iranian atom has been achieved by Iran and the six international mediators on 14 July 2015. Adopted a joint comprehensive plan of action (SVPD), which removes Iran’s previously imposed economic and financial sanctions by the UN security Council, US and EU. The plan came into effect on 16 January 2016.
