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

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

"Anyone doing business with Iran will NOT be doing business with the United States".

Mr Zarif said European powers - who say the nuclear deal is working - were asking other countries to continue buying Iranian oil or even start doing so when the next batch of USA sanctions take effect.

Despite threats voiced by Washington, a number of countries have refused to bow to Trump's demands to cut ties with Iran.

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. "I do not have any national-security concern".

He said he considered the USA pullout from the nuclear deal and re-imposition of sanctions to be "incorrect".

"It's pretty clear to us that they were trying to use that exercise to send a message to us that as we approach this period of the sanctions here that they had some capabilities", Votel told reporters at the Pentagon.

"There is a big difference this time", said Zarif.

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas warned Wednesday that US President Donald Trump's decision to reimpose sanctions on Iran could further destabilize the Middle East and boost radical forces in the region.

"We're extraordinarily vigilant and watching for changes in the environment and making sure that we are identifying that first and not putting ourselves in a position where we're vulnerable".

The North Korean foreign minister on Wednesday was quoted as describing the new measures as "inappropriate and contrary to global standards".

Trump tweeted on Tuesday: "These are the most biting sanctions ever imposed, and in November they ratchet up to yet another level".

"The performance of the USA 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.

British Foreign Office Minister Alastair Burt said that the "Americans have really not got this right". "America has zigzagged constantly, so now no one trusts them".

Russia's foreign ministry said it was "deeply disappointed" by the return of sanctions, adding that it would do "everything necessary" to save the 2015 nuclear deal. They target USA dollar financial transactions, Iran's automotive sector and the purchase of commercial planes and metals, including gold.

Iran's foreign minister Javad Zarif turned the tables on Washington's efforts to isolate the regime, saying Monday that it is in fact the US, Israel, and Saudi Arabia who are isolated in their hostility towards Iran.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hailed the renewed sanctions as "an important moment for Israel, for the USA, for the region, for the whole world".
