"America's behaviour has frustrated the world", said Iran's army spokesman Masoud Jazayeri, according to the semi-official ISNA agency.

Rouhani cautioned against the repercussions of a planned move by the United States to designate the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) as a terrorist group, saying the IRGC is popular not only in Iran but also in regional countries, Tasnim News reported.

All the other signatories to the agreement - Britain, France, Germany, China and Russian Federation - have urged the U.S. to stick with the deal, saying Iran has so far stuck to its commitments to restrict its nuclear programme.

The IRGC is responsible for numerous terror attacks on American troops over the years and has played a key role in interfering with USA operations in Syria.

New reports emerged Wednesday afternoon that Trump's planned speech on Iran may be scaled back and not take place until Friday, if it does at all.

Baker's warning echoed a similar one by Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi, who warned earlier on Monday warned that the country's reaction to the possibility of the Iran Revolutionary Guards being designated as a terror group would be "firm and crushing". "They're wrong and if they stay wrong, lawmakers will eventually make it an oversight issue".

"If American officials make such a strategic mistake, the Islamic Republic of Iran will take a reciprocal measure", Zarif said, adding, "Some measures have been thought out in this regard and will be taken at the appropriate time".

The aide went on to accuse Washington of supporting Islamic State (IS, formerly ISISISIL) terrorists.

Pointing to "very few states that support the U.S. measures", Rouhani said that Iran's approach is supported by the world, "and even among the USA allies in Europe, there is no party that backs cancelling the deal, since it is an worldwide and not a bilateral one".

Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) commander Mohammad Ali Jafari (L) and Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif smile during a coordination meeting for the 40th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution, in Tehran, Iran October 9, 2017. "The U.S. government constantly reviews information, through an interagency process, to evaluate potential sanctions violators for targeting under existing sanctions authorities".

According to him, if any side fails to stand committed to the deal, it would be tarnishing its own reputation.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and many world leaders on Monday unanimously thew their weight behind the nuclear agreement rejecting the USA president's claims that Tehran has violated the "spirit" of the deal.
