THE United States will struggle to negotiate with North Korea because of Donald Trump’s behaviour, a furious Iran has warned.

As tensions reach breaking point on the Korean peninsula over Kim Jong-un’s efforts to build up his nuclear arsenal, Iran has waded into the row.

Tehran said it will continue to produce missiles for its defence and does not consider that a violation of international accords.

And in a veiled dig, Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani took aim at Donald Trump.

Mr Rouhani slammed the US over Mr Trump’s refusal earlier this month to formally certify that Tehran is complying with the 2015 accord on Iran’s nuclear programme, even though international inspectors say it is.

Mr Rouhani said: “You are disregarding past negotiations and agreements approved by the UN Security council and expect others to negotiate with you?”

“Because of the behaviour it has adopted, America should forget any future talks and agreement with other countries,” Rouhani added, referring to unnamed countries in East Asia, an apparent reference to North Korea.

US Defence Secretary Jim Mattis said on Saturday that he could not imagine the United States ever accepting a nuclear North Korea, and stressed during a week-long trip to Asia that diplomacy was America’s preferred course.

Mr Rouhani spoke days after the US House of Representatives voted for new sanctions on Iran’s ballistic missile programme, part of an effort to clamp down on Tehran without immediately moving to undermine an international nuclear agreement.
