Meanwhile, China and Russian Federation, the other two parties, have also repeatedly called on the United States to maintain its commitment to the Iranian Nuclear deal which is "a beneficial practice of solving a critical issue through political and diplomatic means".
Describing sanctions against Larijani as "hostile action", the foreign ministry said the move "crossed all the red lines of conduct in the worldwide community".
It also said Iran would not allow the deal to be linked to other issues, after Trump suggested that the sanctions relief under the deal be tied to Iran limiting its long-range ballistic missile program. These are separate to the nuclear deal. Scuttling the nuclear deal would be a disaster, especially with the mass protests going on in Iran right now.
"If does not comply with any of these provisions, American nuclear sanctions would automatically resume", he said.
First Vice-President Eshaq Jahangiri said in a post on his Instagram page that the U.S. would "lose out" if they withdrew from the deal.
Three officials said the waivers will be accompanied by other, targeted sanctions on Iran for human rights abuses and a stern warning that Trump will pull out of the nuclear deal negotiated by the Obama administration if fixes aren't made by spring. The speculation is that he will keep us in the deal but apply some very specific sanctions to Iranian officials with ties to terrorism.
Trump's decision to again waive the sanctions related to the 2015 accord was recommended by his entire national security team, including National Security Adviser HR McMaster, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. The official said his action on Friday "will be the last such waiver he will issue".
He also called on Iran to stay calm and continue to fulfill obligations under the deal.
