President Donald Trump signed legislation to impose fresh sanctions on Iran over its ballistic missile programme in July.

On Sunday, Iran's parliament supported the bill on additional $520 million for the ballistic missiles program and for the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).

Iran maintains that the missiles that it tests don't violate its 2015 nuclear agreement with world powers because they are for defensive purposes.

Deputy Foreign Minister for Legal and International Affairs Seyyed Abbas Araqchi said the government fully supports the new law passed by the parliament against the United States terrorist and adventurous measures in the region, describing it as a "wise" and "appropriate" move against Washington's enmities towards Iran.

Iran's National Security and Foreign Policy Committee spokesman Seyed Hossein Naghavi Hosseini, while defending the bill, said the bill does not include any measure that would undermine JCPOA in any way; "Iran will never be the first to kill the nuclear deal and take responsibility for its costs", he added.

The deal eased sanctions on Iran in exchange for curbs to its nuclear programme and was endorsed by a United Nations resolution.

Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi also voiced approval of Rouhani's administration for the bill.

It also took into account America's enmity towards the Iranian government and people and their interests through supporting terrorism and violent extremism, as well as taking adventurous actions, creating divisions, and stoking sectarianism.

The Quds Force leads Iran's military role in Syria and Iraq.

A parliamentary committee is also tasked with monitoring USA government and congressional moves and and proposing appropriate reciprocal measures to the Parliament.

A number of recent close encounters between U.S. ships and Iranian vessels in the Gulf have added to the tensions between the two countries.
