Iran said the USA request, "including all references therein, are null and void, have no legal standing and effect and are thus completely inadmissible".
Indonesia's UN Ambassador, Dian Triansyah Djani, whose country is presiding over the Security Council this month, said the council was "not in the position to take further action" in response to a question from Russian Federation and China during a meeting on the Middle East.
"It is clear for me that there is one member which has a particular position on the issues, while there are significant numbers of members who have contesting views", he said. "I only regret that the other members of this council have lost their way and now find themselves standing in the company of terrorists".
Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif tweeted a link to a Reuters story about the UNSC president's remark, writing "Pompeo's lawless bullying leaves [the] US isolated again", before adding that it was time for US President Donald Trump to "stop listening to novice bullies".

Most of the council's member nations submitted letters saying the USA could not do so, as Washington withdrew from the nuclear agreement in 2018.
The president of the U.N. Security Council on Tuesday rejected the Trump administration's demand to restore all U.N. sanctions on Iran, a move that drew an angry rebuke from the USA ambassador who accused opponents of supporting "terrorists".
The Trump administration attempted to initiate the snapback process last week, after the security council rejected a draft U.S. resolution that would have extended indefinitely an arms embargo on Iran due to expire in mid-October. So it is likely to ignore the US demand as well. Only the Dominican Republic supported the United States.
"Efforts to change the Iranian regime by taking the people to the streets also failed".
Russia's envoy, Vassily Nebenzia, said he hoped the Trump administration would now drop its request, which he said was "not only illegal, but simply will not lead to achieving the result that was envisaged by the United States".
"Put simply: It is Russian Federation and China that revel in this Council's dysfunction and failure", she said.
The president of the U.N. Security Council said Tuesday there is no consensus for restoring global sanctions on Iran in the 15-member council and that he would take no further action on a US demand to re-impose them.
"The United States is no longer a JCPOA participant and therefore the United States can not activate the snap back mechanism", he said.
"The French ambassador on Tuesday recalled a statement by France, Germany and the U.K., which said that since the U.S.is not a participant of the deal, the group "[does] not consider that the United States' notification is effective" and is "incapable of having legal effect".
He stressed that under security council resolution 2231, which endorsed the accord, the U.S. had a legal right to do so because it was still named as a participant. If those restrictions are lifted, nations such as China and Russian Federation will be legally permitted to sell Iran advanced weaponry and military equipment.
Washington insists on its legal right to trigger the disputed procedure, called "snapback" - despite pulling out of the deal two years ago.
