Rouhani warns USA over preventing Iran from exporting oil - ISNA

April FrancisSep 26, 2018

The US has also accused Iran of promoting worldwide terrorism, which Tehran vehemently denies.

"The United States is not capable of bringing our oil exports to zero", Rouhani told NBC News' Lester Holt in an exclusive interview set to air in full Monday evening."This is an empty promise, and it's a threat that is empty of credibility".

Iran's President Hassan Rouhani, top center, reviews army troops marching during the 38th anniversary of Iraq's 1980 invasion of Iran, in front of the shrine of the late revolutionary founder, Ayatollah Khomeini, outside Tehran, Iran, Saturday, Sept. 22, 2018. "Maybe someday in the future".

"As I have said repeatedly, regime change in Iran is not the administration's policy", national security advisor John Bolton told reporters as he previewed President Donald Trump's week at the United Nations General Assembly.

"Trump and Pompeo's dream will never become a reality, that is for sure" the semi-official IRNA news agency quoted him saying.

Trump put the kibosh on a meeting after the top adviser to Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei on Tuesday rejected a United States offer for top-level meetings, according to Reuters.

It saw Iran limit its nuclear activities in exchange for sanctions relief.

Trump, who has warm relations with Iranian rivals Saudi Arabia and Israel, has pulled the United States out of an global agreement to constrict Iran's nuclear program and instead has restored sanctions.

In a major setback to the United States and Trump's administration, the European Union has made a decision to constitute new ways to enable legal trade with Iran, despite USA sanctions, which are expected in November.

Iran has not requested a meeting with the U.S. president, a spokesman for Iran's mission to the United Nations said on Tuesday. Russia, China, and Islamic countries were where the future of world power lies, Velayati said.

As a precondition for any dialogue, Rouhani said Trump would need to fix the damage done by pulling out of the 2015 nuclear deal in May, reinstating economic penalties against Tehran and urging other countries to stop buying Iranian oil.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo arrives for the signing of a trade agreement with South Koreak in NY on September 24, 2018.

The Trump administration withdrew from the Iran nuclear agreement earlier this year and imposed sanctions on businesses dealing with Tehran.

"That's who's running the show in Iran. I think that would be an important and interesting conversation". As Mogherini put it, the more actions the JCPOA parties take to live up to their end of the bargain, the more reasons Iran has to remain in the deal.
