Brigadier General Hossein Salami, deputy commander of the elite Revolutionary Guards, criticised Donald Trump’s withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), also known as the Iran Nuclear Deal, and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s 12-point plan for Iran’s inclusion in a new nuclear treaty with the US.
Speaking at a ceremony in Tehran, Mr Salami said: “They think Iran should end the development of its missile programme.
"Since they cannot force us, they ask us to do it, ourselves.”
In a stark warning to the US, he added: "No one can destroy our missile power and if they are afraid they can go to shelters.”

Mr Pompeo delivered a stark warning to Iran in his first speech as Secretary of State last Monday, and outlined a 12-point plan of “basic requirements” Iran needs to fulfil before the US can pursue new negotiations and dialogue with the country.
These demands include ending the enrichment and reprocessing of plutonium, releasing all US citizens held in the country, and ending the support to Middle East
