Iran is left with no choice but to confront the US, Iranian Parliament speaker Ali Larijani warned Wednesday.

Iran’s Press TV quoted Larijani as issuing the warning in light of legislation proposed by US opponents to the Iran nuclear deal to further sanction the Islamic Republic and the UN’s first bi-annual report on the deal’s implementation released earlier this week which suggested that Iran was not following “the spirit of the deal.”

“Majlis (Iranian Parliament), utterly regretting the UN chief’s move, is warning the US administration and its House of Representatives and Senate that injurious measures against the nuclear agreement have reached such a point that there is no way left for Iran but to counteract,” Larijani stated.

Discussing Ban’s report, Larijani said, “On the one hand, the Secretary General says in his report that Iran’s commitment is encouraging, and on the other, he makes no reference to Iran’s concerns and complaints about the non-implementation of all of the P5+1’s obligations.”
