Iran warn of ‘CONSEQUENCES’ as USA announces ban on oil exports

The sanctions go back into place after Trump in July threatened Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.

In comments carried by the Office of the President, Rouhani was said to have praised the two countries' "friendly and heartfelt relationship" and mutual support for each other, while warning that Washington should not be seen as trustworthy.

On Tuesday, the USA reinstated sanctions targeting the Iranian government's purchase of U.S. dollars, Iran's trade in gold and other precious metals, and its automotive sector.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said in a meeting with North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho on Wednesday that the U.S.is an "unreliable" country and can not be trusted.

The statement added that without Iran, al-Abadi would not have been in power, pointing out that the duty of the Iraqi government was to stand by Iran in order to break the USA economic blockade.

USA officials have said in recent weeks that they aim to pressure countries to stop buying oil from Iran in a bid to force Tehran to halt its nuclear and missile programs and involvement in regional conflicts in Syria and Iraq.

Critics accused him of mismanagement and blamed him for the country's recent economic problems, which have been exacerbated by the restoration of US sanctions lifted under the 2015 nuclear agreement.

When the customer in front of her Friday at Wawa was having an issue at the register, she jumped at the opportunity to help. Though an American country music star, Urban famously hails from New Zealand. "And he said, 'What's your name?' Ruth".

"These are the most biting sanctions ever imposed", Trump tweeted on Tuesday.

"If the Americans want to keep this simplistic and impossible idea in their minds they should also know its consequences", Zarif told the Iran newspaper. Zarif said that Oman and Switzerland have acted as mediators in talks with America in the past but that there are now no direct or indirect talks being held with the United States.

On Monday, Rouhani said Iran was ready to enter talks with the US if Washington compensated the country for past damages.

In a speech hours before the sanctions were due to take effect on Tuesday, Rouhani rejected negotiations as long as Washington was no longer complying with the deal.

A North Korean delegation also attended President Hassan Rouhani's inauguration in August 2017. "We can't get drawn into a confrontation with America by falling into this war room trap and playing on a battlefield".

His visit to Iran is the first by a high-ranking DPRK delegation since August a year ago, when President of the Presidium of the Supreme People's Assembly Kim Yong Nam and vice foreign minister Choe Hui Chol spent several days in the country.

Signed in 2015, the landmark deal was meant to lift sanctions against Iran in return for curbs in its nuclear programme.
