Tensions are rising between the United States and Iran.
The United States is accusing Iran of breaking an United Nations resolution not to develop ballistic missile technology.
Iran claims they are in right, saying the US are the ones breaking the nuclear agreement reached between the two countries.
In the latest exchange, Iran has threatened it would “act decisively” against the US.
Per Free Beacon:
Ali Larijani, speaker of Iran’s parliament, lashed out Tuesday at the Trump administration and accused it of “blatantly” violating statutes in the nuclear agreement that obligate the United States to promote international trade with Iran and refrain from issuing new sanctions.
Larijana promised that Iran would “act decisively” to retaliate against the United States with its own package of sanctions and other measures, according to comments by the senior leader. Iranian President Hassan Rouhani threatened that American “will be harmed” by its recent moves.
Following the most recent imposing of sanctions against Iran, the country threatened the US:
Iranian leaders continued to bash the United States on Tuesday, following the recent round of sanctions imposed by the Trump administration and Congress.
Rouhani issued a warning to the United States as the Iranian parliament considered emergency measures to retaliate against the United States.

“The Americans should know that they will be harmed more by such moves, as such acts will isolate them in the world,” Rouhani was quoted as saying.
Iran looks to proceed with their ballistic missile program and says the US is violating an international agreement:
Larijani, speaker of Iran’s parliament also accused the United States of violating the deal.
“Given the evidence, in our view in the nuclear committee (which supervises implementation of the nuclear deal) the Americans have blatantly violated the nuclear deal,” Larijani was quoted as telling reporters Tuesday in Tehran.
“Mr. Trump advised other countries not to invest in Iran; such remarks are against the nuclear deal and such an atmosphere shouldn’t be created based on the agreement,” Lirijani was quoted as saying. “Iran should act decisively and wisely to prevent the Americans from attaining their goals.”
Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif, who negotiated the nuclear deal, also accused the Trump administration of violating the agreement and vowed that Iran would continue its work on ballistic missile technology, which it claims does not violate international accords baring such activity.
The US says it is Iran that is violating an United Nations resolution:
The U.S. State Department, however, disagrees with this characterization and accused Iran of being in breach of United Nations resolutions that call on Iran to refrain from testing and constructing ballistic missiles.
Iran—which conducted a major space launch last week—has been steadfast about its commitment to pursuing advanced missile technology, an issue that has emerged as a flashpoint between Tehran and the United States in recent months.
