Iran threatens 'crushing response to US bullying' after sanctions declaration


Iran's President Hassan Rouhani has said the US "faces defeat" in its move to reimpose UN sanctions on the country as European allies called the unilateral declaration legally void.

In a televised speech, Mr Rouhani said Iran would "give a crushing response to America's bullying".

The Trump administration said the measures were being reimposed under the mechanism of a deal the US has quit.
