"And we can not abide by an agreement if it provides cover for the eventual construction of a nuclear program", he said in his address at the 72nd session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).

In response, US President Donald Trump issued Iran a stark warning that cast growing uncertainty over whether a nuclear deal clinched with the Islamic Republic would survive after the latest test.

In a Tweet, U.S. President Donald Trump used the occasion to renew his criticism against the nuclear deal.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said his country was still committed to the deal, which lifts sanctions on the country as long as it doesn't advance its nuclear weapons program.

President Trump has promised over and over again to adopt a much harder line in the direction of Iran, intimidating at numerous time to negotiate or maybe take apart this 2015 nuclear option, as well as blast Iranian boats out from the waters should they pressure United states naval ships.

"As long as Iranians were barred from entering the US, USA citizens would be barred from entering Iran; as soon as the US lifts the ban, as it was forced to do at the end of February, Iran would respond in kind".

"Iran just test-fired a Ballistic Missile capable of reaching Israel.They are also working with North Korea". But Iran is still subject to an arms embargo and other restrictions, which are not technically part of the nuclear agreement.

"On the one hand Iran is trying to demonstrate they are the pragmatic rational actor here and maintain unity among the other signatories of the nuclear agreement, even if from the U.S. side it starts to unravel", Vakil told CNN.
