Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has threatened a "crushing response" if the United States continues efforts to prolong a U.N. Security Council arms embargo on Tehran that is set to expire later this year.

A landmark 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and six world powers provided for Tehran to curb its nuclear program in return for the lifting of international sanctions, as well as for a U.N. conventional-weapons embargo due to expire in October.

But U.S. President Donald Trump in 2018 withdrew from the agreement signed under his predecessor, Barack Obama, calling it a bad deal, and reimposed harsh sanctions that have crippled Iran's economy.

Washington now says it also wants to extend the arms embargo.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo vowed on April 29 to use all means available to extend the ban beyond October and said he was "hopeful" the UN Security Council would prolong the restriction before it expires.
