In response, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called Rouhani's comments "outrageous" and said Mr. Trump will not be meeting with Iran. European allies and Iran have pledged their continued commitment to the agreement, which had lifted earlier imposed sanctions in return for curbs in Tehran's nuclear program. In November, the U.S.is expected to pass additional embargoes targeting oil and shipping industries, the BBC reports.
Separately, Iranian Defence Minister Amir Hatami said that Iran would not bow to intensifying USA economic pressure.
"Iran's leaders sow chaos, death and destruction", the president told the UN General Assembly in a 34-minute speech that was more critical of Iran than any other country.
"Iran has good arguments and good reasons to remain in the agreement.the more operational decisions we will manage to take and.implement, I believe the more Iran will have reasons to do", she added.
"If you cross us, our allies, or our partners; if you harm our citizens...there will indeed be hell to pay", Bolton said.
French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian also told Le Monde in an interview published on Sunday that as long as Iran stays committed to the JCPOA, his country will also honor it.
"It is truly an outlaw regime", he said. But to do so, Iran says it needs to be able to sell its oil.
Bolton has denied that the United States is seeking to overthrow the regime but before taking office had called for efforts to destabilize the country. "The ongoing, multinational, multicontinental nature of Iranian malign activity leaves no room for inaction or indecision".
The hostile rhetoric was part of a concerted effort by the Trump administration to muster global support for pressuring Iran as world leaders convene in NY for the United Nations General Assembly.
"The United States of America one day will come back, sooner or later", he said.
"In its estimation, might makes right".
"The US' understanding of worldwide relations is authoritarian".
Iran and the European Union announced their defiance towards U.S. President Donald Trump's administration after high-level talks at the United Nations ended Monday.
The European Union's foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini, said on Wednesday a so-called Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) under consideration to facilitate trade with Iran may be in place "before November".
Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and Iran agreed at the United Nations on Monday to keep working to maintain trade despite the new sanctions.
The United States has sharply criticized a European Union plan to help Iran get around US sanctions by establishing alternative ways to pay for Iran's trade with European companies. "And we ask all nations to support Iran's people as they struggle to reclaim their religious and righteous destiny", Trump said.
