USA general slams leader of Iran's Quds Force

Iran's ambassador to the United Nations Gholamali Khoshrou, in a commentary published by Britain's Guardian newspaper on Wednesday, said that Trump was making history by violating a U.N. Security Council resolution it voted for three years ago.

In a commentary published by the Guardian on Wednesday, Khoshroo stressed that by ditching the nuclear deal with Iran and sanctioning countries engaged in business transactions with the country, the U.S. is violating UNSC Resolution 2231.

Iran's utmost authority Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said the Islamic Republic had nothing to be concerned about, a report on his official website said on Wednesday, as the country's clerical leadership faces biting US sanctions.

"China's lawful rights should be protected".

While Votel said the scope of the recent Iranian maritime exercise was similar to that of other exercises done in the region, its timing gave it added significance.

Rouhani claimed President Trump's exit from the nuclear deal revealed what he calls "America's lack of commitment to global obligations".

Iran's currency has been in steady decline since the start of the year as the country anxiously awaits the re-imposition of full United States sanctions, trading at record lows and losing almost two-thirds of its value against the dollar.

The ministry also reminded Washington that Beijing follows a consistent policy of opposing any "unilateral sanctions and long-armed jurisdiction" indiscriminately practiced by the United States against members of the worldwide community. But he says the US military is "paying attention", and will "remain ready to protect ourselves".

Before 2008, "buck-a-beer" did exist, until the Liberal government boosted the price of a 24-pack of beer from $24 to $25.60. Brewers are not required to charge the lower rate and few in the province sell at the current minimum.

European countries have also vowed to protect the nuclear deal by continuing to trade with Iran.

Turkey, however, said it would continue to buy natural gas from Iran.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif told reporters that the global reaction to Trump's move showed that the U.S. was diplomatically isolated.

Iran launched the exercise in the Gulf last week, sending dozens of small attack boats out into the Strait of Hormuz - a vital, oil-shipping waterway that Iranian President Hassan Rouhani last month threatened to shut down.

Trump has said he is ready to hold talks with Iranian leaders, without preconditions but meanwhile, his administration has vowed to press on with its pressure campaign.

In a speech hours before the sanctions were due to take effect on Tuesday, Rouhani rejected negotiations as long as Washington was no longer complying with the deal.

His visit to Iran is the first by a high-ranking DPRK delegation since August a year ago, when President of the Presidium of the Supreme People's Assembly Kim Yong Nam and vice foreign minister Choe Hui Chol spent several days in the country.

"If you stab someone with a knife and then you say you want talks, then the first thing you have to do is remove the knife", Rouhani said in a speech broadcast live on state television.
