Iran Reserves Right to Respond to US Hostile Moves: Spokesman

As regards a bill the US Congress has recently passed to impose new sanctions on Tehran, Shamkhani said the Iranian committee monitoring the JCPOA implementation has formulated a set of measures in the "legal, technical, nuclear, economic, political, defense and military spheres" to respond to the US measure.

"At the same time, Western officials say some of the missiles, which have been tested by Iran after the 2015 nuclear deal, have been inherently capable of delivering nuclear weapons and are in defiance of the United Nations resolution", he said.

Iran is called upon not to undertake any activity related to ballistic missiles created to be capable of delivering nuclear weapons, including launches using such ballistic missile technology, until the date eight years after the JCPOA Adoption Day or until the date on which the IAEA submits a report confirming the Broader Conclusion, whichever is earlier. It agreed to eliminate worldwide sanctions and normalize economic relations with Iran in exchange for Tehran's reduction of uranium enrichment below weapons-grade levels, and to allow global inspections to ensure that weapons were not being produced.

At the end of July, after the House of representatives, the u.s. Senate has approved almost unanimously a bill to impose sanctions against Russia, Iran and North Korea.

"Iran has stood up to the United States' hostile moves, and, as always, is pressing ahead with its efforts to ensure stability and security, and relentlessly continues its fight against terrorism in a bid to promote peace and stability in the region", he noted.

"Iran's countermeasures against the U.S. lack of commitment to the JCPOA will be coordinated and [conducted in] parallel [with one another]", Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council Ali Shamkhani said on Wednesday.

President Trump has firmly opposed the Iran deal and promised to scrap it. Trump said recently that, although the US recertified Iran's compliance, he believes they are in violation of the deal.

Iran's Foreign Ministry dismissed the charges, describing its missile program as a "domestic policy of the country, deterrent and at service (sic) of regional peace and security". He did not elaborate, but said some measures "improve" Iran's armed forces.

Blast in Shi'ite mosque kills 20 in Afghanistan
Hospital authorities in Herat said all the dead and wounded were worshipping in the mosque when a suicide bomber blew himself up. A reporter for AFP said he had seen a number of bodies brought out of the mosque, leading to fears of a heavy death toll.

She also accused Iran of aiding terrorist groups such as Hezbollah.

The sanctions were announced a day after the country tested a satellite rocket launcher.

The launch followed the USA move in July to increase economic sanctions placed on Iran for its ballistic missile program.

U.S. law requires the president to certify that Iran is in compliance with the agreement every 90 days, with the next deadline in October.

Wednesday's letter says Iran's launch is "inconsistent" with that section of the resolution. The US، however، has prevented the deal from fully yielding.

Deputy Foreign Minister Araqchi's rhetoric comes as Iranian President Hassan Rouhani is endorsed by Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei for his second term after being re-elected in a landslide in May. The news agency says senior officials from 92 countries are in Tehran for an oath-taking ceremony Saturday.

The bill, called the "Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act", targets Iran, Russia, and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.
