Iran's foreign minister: USA will not stop Iran oil exports: newspaper

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani receives North Korea's Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho during their meeting in the capital Tehran

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

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.

Most Iranians see United States hostility as a basic fact of life, so their frustration is largely directed at their own leaders for not handling the situation better.

China, Iran's top oil customer, buys roughly 650,000 barrels a day of crude oil from Tehran, or 7 percent of China's total crude oil imports.

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

Trump said Monday that he was open to new talks to reach a "more comprehensive deal" with Iran.

"They can not think that Iran won't export oil and others will export.".

According to Rouhani's own Mehr press agency, he also spoke of the USA withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal, saying the move resulted in complete loss of faith in Washington.

"We still think that it is a mistake to give up on the nuclear accord with Iran", Maas said in an interview with the daily Passauer Neue Presse.




Following its withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal earlier this year, on Tuesday the USA slapped Iran with "the most biting sanctions ever".

State energy firms CNPC and Sinopec have invested billions of dollars in key Iranian oil fields such as Yadavaran and North Azadegan and have been sending oil to China.

The Iranian foreign minister also said the world does not pay attention to "impulsive tweeted diktats" by Trump.

Mr Trump chose to restore sanctions against Iran despite pleas from other world powers that had co-sponsored the deal, including Washington's main European allies, Britain, France and Germany, as well as Russian Federation and China.

This comes as the Ayatollah regime is trying to rally global support for its regional policies.

Iran routinely operates small boats in the Strait of Hormuz and the surrounding area, and has often threatened to shut down the busy waterway.

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas, however, warned that the unilateral United States sanctions could further destabilise the Middle East and boost "radical forces" in the region.

Meanwhile, Italian Foreign Minister Moavero Milanesi said that "agreements have to be respected".

North Korean foreign minister, Ri Yong Ho, visited Iran as the United States reintroduced sanctions against the Islamic Republic.
