Iran's foreign minister says 'no one trusts America' anymore

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

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.

Iran's foreign minister vowed on Wednesday to fight back against US sanctions, remarks that come just days after the Trump administration introduced new measures it says are aimed at forcing policy changes in the country.

"China has consistently opposed unilateral sanctions and long-armed jurisdiction", the Chinese foreign ministry said.

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

CNPC is also about to take over Total's stake in the giant Iranian South Pars gas project after the French company chose to leave amid U.S. sanctions. Anyone doing business with Iran will NOT be doing business with the United States.

The EU's foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini, responded to President Trump's tweet by urging European firms to ignore the White House.

The world's No. 2 economy is reportedly gearing up to take more and "vacuum up much of the Iranian oil that other nations won't buy because of the threat of United States sanctions". It is Iran's biggest oil customer, taking in more than 650,000 barrels per day from the country.

USA officials have said in recent weeks that they aim to reduce Iran's oil exports to zero as a means of pressuring Tehran to halt its nuclear and missile programmes and involvement in regional conflicts in Syria and Iraq.

The company said it was "saddened and disappointed" by the lawsuit, which it called "needless and wasteful". Still, Schnatter, who admits to making those comments, says the company does better when he's there.

Trump has pledged to bring Iran's oil exports - now at around 2.4 million bpd - to zero but Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif stressed that the U.S. leader will not succeed.

"The financial and political war against the regime will continue and I anticipate Iran's predicament will only worsen", Dubowitz told the Washington Free Beacon.

US 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.

Photos posted to the Office of the President's website show Ri and Hassan Rouhani joined by four others from the North Korean delegation sitting across from Iranian counterparts.

"The Americans have assembled a war room against Iran", he said.

"Reimposition of nuclear-related sanctions through today's actions further intensifies pressure on Tehran to change its conduct", Trump said Monday.

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.
