Iran did not request to speak at the council meeting, but Iranian President Hassan Rohani told a news conference that the United States would eventually rejoin the nuclear deal and pledged Tehran's continued commitment to the accord.

Later in the day, Special Representative for Iran Brian Hook told a press conference in NY that the private sector across the world has understood the US' sanctions message very clearly and "that's why major companies from Europe to Asia are getting out of Iran and terminating business".

Addressing the United Against Nuclear Iran pressure group being held near the annual UN General Assembly, Pompeo said he was "disturbed and, indeed, deeply disappointed" by Monday's announcement from remaining members of an global nuclear deal.

President Donald Trump warned world leaders Wednesday that any entity who fails to comply with his administration's sanctions against Iran will face "severe consequences".

Mr Pompeo alleged Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif Khonsari were brazenly defying the vision of the United Nations, the requirements of worldwide and the principles of national sovereignty.

The remaining parties to the Iran nuclear deal on Monday agreed to keep working to maintain trade with Tehran despite skepticism this is possible as USA sanctions to choke off Iranian oil sales resume in November.

He used the occasion to accuse Iran of sponsoring terrorism and fueling "conflict around the region and far beyond".

Spearheaded by former US President Barak Obama and negotiated over nearly two years, the Iran nuclear deal, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) ended a perennial impasse between Iran and the US.

French President Emmanuel Macron, who spoke directly after Trump, called for "a long-term strategy to manage the crisis that can not be reduced to a policy of sanctions and containment of Iran".

"What will bring a real solution to the situation in Iran and what has already stabilised it?"

They said it will "assist and reassure economic operators pursuing legitimate business with Iran", after Mr. Trump pulled out of the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran and re-imposed sanctions. "Pressure from only one side? No!"

Trump and his aides, meanwhile, stepped up their attacks on the nuclear deal, with Trump calling it "horrible" and maintained that many Middle Eastern countries had supported the decision to withdraw, referring to Israel and Gulf Arab nations such as Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. The EU has updated its "blocking statute" to temper the impact.

Speaking at Tehran's Mehrabad airport on Thursday, President Rouhani briefed the reporters on the outcome of his trip to NY, where he attended the 73rd session of the UN General Assembly, met with world leaders on the sidelines, and gave several interviews to American media outlets.

The five other world powers who signed the nuclear deal remain strongly committed to it and the new financial facility is nearly certain to anger the Trump administration. "We gave it to them".
