Iran's Araqchi: UN Security Council meeting to isolate U.S

On the opening day of the General Assembly debate Trump and Rouhani are to take their turn at the podium four months after the US president ditched the Iran nuclear deal

His national security adviser, John Bolton, was to go even further in a speech Tuesday, issuing a dire warning to Iran: "If you cross us, our allies or our partners; if you harm our citizens; if you continue to lie, cheat and deceive, yes, there will indeed be hell to pay", Bolton said, according to prepared remarks released by the White House. The accord with OPEC member Iran was negotiated under Democratic US President Barack Obama.

The Iranian president was reacting to Trump's tweet on Tuesday, in which he tried to suggest that he had turned down requests to meet the Iranian president, but that he may agree to talks "someday in the future".

Addressing the council after Trump, French President Emmanuel Macron hit back, declaring that concerns about Iran can not be tackled with "a policy of sanctions and containment". He also said he has received historical levels of defence funding, along with emphasising that United States unemployment was low.

But the other countries that signed it - who think the pact offers the best chance of stopping Iran developing a nuclear bomb - agreed on Monday to keep working to maintain trade with Tehran.

Donald Trump has addressed his rather embarrassing United Nations speech the other day by diving straight into the kind of head-in-the-sand carry-on that elicited the now famous UN-wide chuckle.

Ever since Trump withdrew the United States from the landmark Iran nuclear deal, tensions between Washington and Tehran have reached historic heights.

"According to the mullahs in Tehran, we are 'the Great Satan, ' lord of the underworld, master of the raging inferno", Bolton said in remarks prepared for delivery at a NY meeting convened to oppose Iran's nuclear ambitions.

"Until such time that our interests are guaranteed with the five remaining countries, we will remain within the JCPOA", Rouhani said, adding that "a one-sided agreement would be meaningless".

The president took a more serious tone when discussing Iranian leadership, accusing the regime of fueling and financing the humanitarian crisis in Syria.

Wang Yi, China's foreign minister, later addressed council on what he called the "unwarranted accusations against China" by saying that Beijing has a policy of "non-interference" in other countries' "domestic affairs".

"We have lived up to the JCPOA", Rouhani said. They made it appear as if they were laughing at him.

Delivering his address to the annual gathering of United Nations heads of state, Trump began in the hyperbolic style of a domestic campaign as he boasted of his record.

"We say do not sanction illegally and unfairly", Rouhani said.

He said the U.S. had already announced $US250 billion ($A345 billion) worth of tariffs on Chinese-made goods and was not ready to back off.

On North Korea, Mr Trump called for sanctions to be strictly enforced against Pyongyang - a message directed at Russian Federation and China which are pushing for an easing of punitive measures to reward North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

"So true", Trump said at the top of his speech.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo repeated the offer on Sunday and also extended it to Khamenei.

It was only the third time in United Nations history that a USA president chaired a Security Council meeting.
