It is to be known that Trump officials on Wednesday had told the Congress that Iran has ties with terror organisation Al Qaeda, which had prompted sceptical reactions and concerns on Capital Hill. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had even backed his claims by stating that the pattern which Iran is using currently is the same as it was used prior to the terror attack in the US on September 11, 2001.

On the other side, Iran had stated on Wednesday that it will not extend the 60-day deadline for the parties to the 2015 nuclear deal to take practical measures to save Tehran's interests. The information was shared by the country's atomic energy agency said on Wednesday.
