Trump issues all-caps threat to Iran


According to the semi-official Tasnim news agency, Mr Qasemi said: "Pompeo's speech on Sunday was a clear interference in 's state matters.such policies will unite ians who will overcome plots against their country".

Iran and the U.S. have been locked into a furious row as President Hassan Rouhani warned Washington it risks the "mother of all wars".

Pompeo told an audience at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in California that the government in Iran has become a nightmare for the Iranian people. Pompeo promised U.S. aid to Iranians who would rise up against their government officials, whom he said were "merely polished front men for the ayatollahs' global con artistry".

Iranian Americans typically express a range of views on U.S. policy towards Iran.

US President Donald Trump on May 8 chose to restore all the sanctions that had been lifted as part of a multi-national agreement, signed on to by former president Barack Obama's administration, in exchange for curbs on Iran's nuclear program.

"War with Iran is the mother of all wars" doesn't sound like the kind of statement Rouhani would give if he were offering an olive branch.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Sunday called the religious leaders of Iran "hypocritical holy men" who amassed vast sums of wealth while allowing their people to suffer.

President Hassan Rouhani on Sunday warned his American counterpart, Donald Trump, about his hostile stance against Iran, saying, "Mr. Trump, do not play with the lion's tail, this would only lead to regret".

"America wants nothing less than (to) destroy Iran", Gholamhossein Gheybparvar said, Reuters reported, citing state media.

Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Saturday backed Rouhani's suggestion that Iran may block Gulf oil exports if its own exports are halted.

Rouhani had hinted earlier this month that Iran may block regional oil exports if its own sales are halted following the USA withdrawal from the nuclear deal.

"We are no longer a country that will stand for your demented words of violence & death".

At the time, Trump told reporters: 'North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani speaks during a joint press conference with Austria's Chancellor Sebastian Kurz following a meeting on July 4, 2018 at the Chancellery in Vienna. Tehran has said its nuclear work is just for electricity generation and other peaceful projects.

"Over the years, this regime has been spoiled by the major powers and it is good to see that the United States is changing this unacceptable equation".

Iran's oil exports could fall by as much as two-thirds by the end of the year because of new USA sanctions, putting oil markets under huge strain amid supply outages elsewhere.

The offensive is meant to work in concert with severe economic sanctions that Washington plans to reimpose in the coming months, including the restrictions on oil exports.
