Rouhani: US Threat to Stop Iranian Oil Exports 'Empty Promise'

While U.S. President Donald Trump used his speech at the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday to denigrate migrants and global cooperation, his Iranian counterpart, Hassan Rouhani, declared that "confronting multilateralism is not a sign of strength, rather it is a symptom of a weakness of intellect". "Perhaps on this path we will sustain certain pressures, but certainly the United States will not reach its objective".

At the Security Council meeting, Trump accused the Iranian regime of stepping up its aggression after signing a nuclear accord in 2015 and said Tehran took advantage of the lifting of sanctions to fund a missile program and support terrorism.

While the first phase of sanctions is already in place, the sanctions would come into full force on November 4 and the U.S. expects all countries, including India, to bring down their import of Iranian oil to zero by then.

Falih said Saudi Arabia could increase output, but the move is not needed at this time because the markets are already adequately supplied.

In May, Trump withdrew from the 2015 nuclear deal under which Iran relinquished its nuclear material in exchange for relief from financial sanctions. He claimed that the "Syrian regime's butchery" was enabled by Iran and Russian Federation.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, speaking at a NY conference on September 25, said that he was "disturbed and indeed deeply disappointed" when he heard of the plan announced a day earlier after a high-level meeting between European and Iranian diplomats.

The impending return of USA sanctions has contributed to a slide in Iran's currency.

"I'll be meeting with Chairman Kim", Trump told reporters arriving at the United Nation's General Assembly.

Grassley said that Mitchell has "decades of experience prosecuting sex crimes", calling her a "career prosecutor". Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley said he "is committed to providing a forum to both Dr.

Without naming countries, the United States president noted that "some nations are already violating UN sanctions" including illegal ship-to-ship transfers of oil and said compliance was "very important".

"Trump was left alone at the session, and this was yet another instance of U.S. isolation", the Iranian president said.

Wednesday´s meeting highlighted divisions between the United States and its European allies over the Iran nuclear deal, but there was also sharp criticism of Trump´s broader foreign policy.

"We're working diligently to make sure we get the conditions right so that we can accomplish as much as possible during the summit".

Addressing the United Nations General Assembly, Netanyahu showed an aerial photograph of the Iranian capital marked with a red arrow and pointed to what he said was a previously secret warehouse holding nuclear-related material.

Trump added that "much work remains to be done" with North Korea and said, "The sanctions will stay in place until denuclearization occurs".

The US has said efforts by countries to set up special payment system to bypass its sanctions against Iran is counterproductive, comments which came after the European Union, in a major snub to the Trump administration, chose to set up a new mechanism to enable legal trade with Iran, without encountering American sanctions.
