The Trump administration previously stated that while Iran has met the requirements of the nuclear deal, it is breaching its spirit by supporting global terrorism and destabilizing the Middle East.

Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei on Sunday warned that "any wrong doing in connection with the nuclear deal will spark reaction of the Islamic Republic of Iran", IRNA reported.

"All the wrong steps by the domineering regime regarding the JCPOA will lead to a corresponding reaction from the Islamic Republic", Khamenei said, as quoted by the Islamic Republic News Agency.

During the negotiations with the world powers in 2013-15, "the country's officials reached the conclusion that they should negotiate and ignore some of their rights so that sanctions would be removed", he said.

Speaking at the graduation ceremony at the Iran's Police Academy, Khamenei said that the Iranian nation "stands firmly on its own feet" and is capable of responding to hostile actions of any state.

The State Department announced on September 14 that it will continue to waive sanctions on Iran as part of the nuclear agreement, but no decision had yet been made on whether to preserve the deal itself.

His comments came as Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani warned the U.S. that revoking the 2015 nuclear deal will harm Washington primarily as Iran has the ability to revive its previous nuclear capabilities in a short time period.

Iran denies its missile development breaches the resolution, saying its missiles are not created to carry nuclear weapons.

"The opponents of the JCPOA are restricted to two or three countries, including some in the United States, who feel cheated".

President Hassan Rohani left on September 17 for the UN General Assembly in NY, where he is expected to hold talks on the nuclear deal.

He said that Iran has been committed to its obligations and this has been confirmed repeatedly by the International Atomic Energy Agency, the United Nations nuclear watchdog.

"We expect the European Union to fully implement the nuclear deal, known as JCPOA, and press the United States to be committed to its obligations to the deal, Rouhani said".

"If the nuclear deal is discarded, Iran will be able to return to its previous status and grow even more powerful than the past before the time planned", he added. The Iran deal is not a fair deal to this country.

The global agreement is facing a serious threat of collapse as tensions mounted between Washington and Tehran recently.
