Iran promised on Monday to give a "crushing" response if the United States designated its elite Revolutionary Guards as a terrorist group.Trump is also expected to designate Iran's most powerful security force, the Revolutionary Guards Corp (IRGC) as a terrorist organization, as he rolls out a broader U.S. strategy on Iran.The foreign ministry spokesman Qasemi also denied U.S. accusations that Iran had cooperated with North Korea.Despite the nuclear deal, Washington still maintains its own more limited sanctions on Iran over its missile programme and over accusations Tehran supports terrorism.In August, Congress overwhelmingly approved the "Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act" which imposed new sanctions on Iran for its ballistic missile program, as well as sanctions on Russia and North Korea.
