"America's behaviour has frustrated the world", said Iran's army spokesman Masoud Jazayeri, according to the semi-official ISNA agency.

Trump is also expected to designate Iran's most powerful security force, the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), as a terrorist organization.

"The IRGC is not just a military unit, but it has been in the hearts of the (Iranian) people and has defended our national interests in all times of danger", he stressed.

Therefore, he added, the U.S. has every right to be angry with the IRGC.

USA media reports indicate President Donald Trump may designate the Guards as a terrorist organization as part of a larger strategy to increase pressure on Iran over its nuclear program.

"So by taking a stance against the Revolutionary Guards and designating it a terrorist group, the Americans would be joining the terrorists' camp", Nobakht said.

Since assuming office, Trump has sought to boost relations with Iran's regional foes, Israel and Saudi Arabia, which had shown signs of wear under former President Barack Obama.

"Congress didn't ask the president to designate the full IRGC", according to one veteran Middle East policy advisor who lobbies Congress on Iran sanctions. "They're wrong and if they stay wrong, lawmakers will eventually make it an oversight issue".
