Mr Araghchi demanded that European signatories follow through on their commitments under the deal, Iran's official Irna news agency reported.

While the a relatively new country, it has played a major role in Iran's modern history, having orchestrated a 1953 coup there to oust a prime minister who challenged the absolute rule of a West-backed monarchy.

Mr Graham said the administration's recent actions, including the deployment of an aircraft carrier, were in response to "strong intelligence" that Iran's leaders had given Shiite militias in Iraq "more running room and direction that attacks against American interests and personnel were imminent".

In response, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani declared May 8 that his country would partially stop complying with a landmark nuclear deal signed in 2015 if it is not compensated for the canceled waiver program.

Since then, Washington has stepped up its rhetoric and reimposed sanctions.

Experts believe that in any confrontation with Iran and its proxies, the USA will have to fight not in a conventional manner but through asymmetric warfare. He called for unity among political factions, saying "we can move past these hard conditions provided that we are united" - as if national unity against the American build-up in the Gulf is an issue stemming from alleged American bid for regime change in Tehran.

However, he vowed to resist "even if Iran is bombed".

"With the finger on the trigger, Iran is ready to respond to any invader strongly and with unbelievable speed", Gen Bagheri said.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif visited Japan and met the prime minister and Foreign Minister Taro Kono earlier this month.

Officials in Islamabad said Zarif would begin his official engagements on Friday.
