Iran's Foreign Minister Zarif: US will not stop Iran oil exports

TENSE IN TEHRAN: The President Slams Iran With 'MOST BITING SANCTIONS EVER IMPOSED'

TENSE IN TEHRAN: The President Slams Iran With 'MOST BITING SANCTIONS EVER IMPOSED'

Tuesday's sanctions target Iran's purchases of US dollars, metals trading, coal, industrial software and the auto sector.

Mr Trump abandoned the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), which saw Iran limit its controversial nuclear activities in exchange for sanctions relief, in May.

The German government said USA sanctions against Iran that have an extra-territorial effect violate worldwide law, and Germany expects Washington to consider European interests when coming up with such sanctions.

BEIJING - China's business ties with Iran are open, transparent and lawful, its foreign ministry said on Wednesday, after US President Donald Trump said companies doing business with Iran would be barred from the United States.

Later, Mr Zarif responded on Twitter by writing: "Tantrums & CAPPED TWEETS won't change the fact that the world is sick & exhausted of USA unilateralism". A second round of sanctions against its energy sector will be reimposed on November 5.

"China's lawful rights should be protected".

European countries have also vowed to protect the nuclear deal by continuing to trade with Iran.

"The performance of the US government over the years is such that today the United States is recognized as an unreliable country in the world that does not adhere to any of its obligations", the President said, calling for the "expansion of relations and cooperation" between Tehran and Pyongyang.

"America has zigzagged constantly, so now no one trusts them", he said.

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.

"If the Americans want to keep this simplistic and impossible idea in their minds they should also know its consequences, " Zarif said".

Iran is a key supplier of natural gas and oil to Turkey, which is nearly 100-percent dependent on fuel imports.

The report said the two discussed significant global issues and mutual interests, likely including both country's ongoing nuclear negotiations with the USA, and "welcomed further enhancement of relations", according to the state-owned Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA).

Trump responded by noting that Iran could face serious consequences if it threatened the United States.

His visit to Iran is the first by a high-ranking DPRK delegation since August previous year, 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.

Trump has said he is ready to hold talks with Iranian leaders, without preconditions but meanwhile, his administration has vowed to press on with its pressure campaign.
