United States seeks to test Iran deal with more inspections

The comments by Iranian officials came as the U.S. House of Representatives approved on Tuesday new sanctions on Iran.

The bill must pass the US Senate before it can be sent to the White House for President Donald Trump to veto or sign into law. "And we will take any other step that we deem necessary in line with the interests of our country, and we would continue our path without paying attention to their sanctions and policies". "However, President Donald Trump's administration is following up on the policy of changing Iran's global and regional policies more aggressively through building up pressure on Tehran - because, maybe, Trump needs a scape goat for the case when his policy within the US dead ends", he said.

Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi said on Wednesday that the fresh sanctions by the United States will have adverse impacts on the "successful" implementation of the nuclear deal, official IRNA news agency reported.

"That's why it is incompatible with various sections of the JCPOA which the United States has committed to implement with good intention and in a constructive atmosphere", the ISNA news agency quoted him as saying.

The House bill would strengthen sanctions on Russian Federation and impose new penalties on Iran and North Korea.

The Iranian official said that if approved and implemented, the bill would undermine the successful implementation of the Iranian nuclear agreement, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), which he referred to as an global multilateral agreement.

"The Americans can not tolerate an independent and influential country in this sensitive region", he said. Corker appeared to endorse the current course the Trump administration has adopted, which is to certify Iran's compliance with the deal but sanction it heavily for its nefarious activity.

Besides, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qasemi said Wednesday that the U.S. Congress bill against Iran will jeopardize the implementation of the JCPOA.

Iran has "successfully" tested a satellite-launch rocket capable of propelling a satellite weighing 250 kilograms (550 pounds) to an altitude of 500 kilometres (300 miles) above the earth, state television said.

Jazayeri said that Iranian armed forces, heedless of USA pressures, "will push their ways to reach the peaks of progress and will make it (the United States) regret its mischievous acts".
