World leaders laugh at Trump during United Nations speech

"The US in taking this action has become alone and isolated, the withdrawal of the US from the JCPOA has not met the approval of many countries around the world", he said.

"We ask all nations to isolate Iran's regime as long as its aggression continues", Trump said.

Addressing the council, Trump called the JCPOA a "horrible one-sided deal", declaring that Iran "must never be allowed to possess a nuclear weapon" and accusing its government of exporting "violence, terror and turmoil".

Trump added: "I'll be meeting with Chairman Kim in the very near future".

The president noted his decision to withdraw the US from the Obama-era nuclear agreement between Iran and other world powers and stressed that many sanctions would be reimposed on Iran in early November.

European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini, speaking late Monday alongside Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, said the agreement was in the global interest and pointed to United Nations inspectors' findings that Iran is in compliance. "We are standing up for America and the American people, and we are also standing up for the world".

"In this framework, global institutions present a threat to American sovereignty, especially at a time when issues like immigration, trade, and the role of frameworks such as alliances and multilateral institutions limit American freedom of action", he said.

Rouhani said it was "quite odd, unprecedented and amazing" that while presiding over the Security Council as its president Trump also called on the 14 other council members to violate the legally binding resolution endorsing the JCPOA that the council adopted unanimously in 2015 - including a "yes" vote from the United States. We do not wish to attack them.

Trump's national security advisor John Bolton warned Tehran of "hell to pay" if it threatens the USA or its allies. Given Trump's smile, it's possible he couldn't quite parse why his colleagues were laughing in the moment.

Rouhani said that the USA should either rectify its mistake or continue with this wrong process.

Trump had called Kim a "rocket man" bent on nuclear destruction in his United Nations speech previous year.

Iran has not requested to speak at the council meeting, diplomats confirmed Tuesday although Rouhani will hold a press conference soon after it is due to end. "Iran has to feel they have no one left to turn to".

Trump said America's economy is booming like never before and since his election, the United States has added Dollars 10 trillion in wealth. He called on OPEC to stop raising oil prices and criticised China's trade practices. He threatened to limit USA aid only to countries that are friendly to the United States.

Crude oil prices shot to a four-year high on Tuesday, catapulted by imminent U.S. sanctions on Iranian crude exports and the apparent reluctance of OPEC and Russian Federation to raise output to offset the potential hit to global supply.
