A few days ago, U.S. Navy fired warning shots near Iran ship in Persian Gulf.
In a statement, the Guards said: "The supercarrier USS Nimitz and its accompanying warship, while being monitored by the Guards" frigates, flew a helicopter near the Resalat oil and gas platform and approached the force's ships'.
The U.S. ships then left the area, according to the report.
"The Americans' move is a kind of unprofessional behavior", he said, adding that the USA naval forces in the Persian Gulf are exhibiting such behavior without considering regional conditions.
The US carrier was "unprofessional and provocative" Friday, the IRGC navy said in a statement Saturday.
This incident followed further confrontation in the Gulf when a USA naval vessel fired warning shots at a Guards vessel as it closed in on the American boat, US officials said Tuesday.
USA military vessels have had approximately 60 unsafe interactions with Iranian ships in the Gulf since 2015, according to US military records.
Mr Trump in the past has blasted the Iran nuclear accord as "the stupidest deal of all time", but has certified to Congress that Iran is still complying with the terms of the agreement. But serious differences remain over Iran's ballistic missile programme and conflicts in Syria and Iraq.
Iranian naval forces are tasked with guaranteeing security within the country's maritime borders, where they have been involved in a series of face-offs with U.S. vessels for intrusion into Iranian territorial waters.
On Saturday Iran's foreign ministry said the missile program is part of "domestic policy of the country, deterrent and at service of regional peace and security".
On Friday, the US, France, Germany and Britain, who brokered the deal with Iran along with China, Russia and the European Union, said they were raising concerns with the United Nations over Iran's launch on Thursday of a satellite-carrying rocket.
