In defiance to US, Iran unveils latest missile during parade

"The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea", Trump said. Iran, he indicated, will not be interested in entering new negotiations. "It's not ideal, but I think we should retain that", he said. In reality, Iran has little incentive to negotiate such concessions.

Mr. Trump calls the unfair election in the region and the starvation of freedom of its people "completely unacceptable and we cannot stand by and watch, we and all other share a goal that goal is to help them regain their freedom recover their country and restore their democracy".

"Instead of focusing on us leaving the agreement, Rouhani needs to start following the rules", she added.

The International Atomic Energy Association, using site visits, satellite imagery and other ways of monitoring, has verified that Iran is meeting its terms of the deal, something United States officials have reaffirmed.

Bolton, widely viewed as a foreign policy hawk, said the Iranian deal was too similar to failed deals with North Korea, and the evidence of past nuclear cooperation between Pyongyang and Tehran did not bode well.

"When we look at the history of North Koreas weapons development programme, in many senses weve seen this before? agreements that just simply pushed it to another government, another administration, to deal with", he said. "I'll let you know what the decision is". His comments came as Iran displayed a new missile at a military parade marking the anniversary of the outbreak of its devastating 1980-1988 war with Saddam Hussein's Iraq.

"It will be a great pity if this agreement were to be destroyed by "rogue" newcomers to the world of politics: the world will have lost a great opportunity", he said in a dig at Trump, who on Tuesday called Iran a "rogue" state.

As he spoke to the assembly, other nations began signing the first treaty to ban nuclear weapons, a pact spurned by nuclear powers.

Trump has signaled he is ready to declare Iran in breach of its side of the 2015 accord - which he has branded the "worst deal ever" - as early as next month. "What I can tell you is if he does not certify, he's certainly on grounds to not do that", she said about it.

One senior Republican lawmaker made a public appeal for Trump not to abandon the accord.

China's nationalist Global Times newspaper ran a cartoon captioned "Bully pulpit" showing Trump holding a megaphone, shouting "America First", while the state-owned China Daily newspaper said Trump's speech was "full of sound and fury". He later told reporters that he had decided what to do about the agreement but would not reveal what he had decided.

Mr. Trump is fourth in line to deliver remarks before the General Assembly today.

French President Emmanuel Macron on Tuesday said that although the 2015 Iran deal was not flawless, the worldwide community should stick with it or risk facing another situation like North Korea. Money flowing to Iran because of sanctions relief is allowing Tehran to fund these destabilizing activities, the administration argues.

USA officials have sent mixed signals about the nuclear agreement Iran hammered out with six major powers - Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the United States.

On Twitter, Trump has referred to the agreement as "a direct national security threat", a "catastrophe that must be stopped", the "dumbest & most risky misjudgments ever entered into in history of our country" and "the best deal of any kind in history" for Iran. "It may suit a 5-year-old; it doesn't suit the United States".

At the U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday, Trump said Iran was building its missile capability and accused it exporting violence to Yemen, Syria and other parts of the Middle East.
