US's Bolton says more sanctions likely on Iran

Addressing the Iranian nation, Rouhani said, "In providing basic goods, we have no problem and our warehouses are ready more than any other time to provide people's essential needs for many months".

The comments came after the U-S secretary of state said Tehran must listen to Washington if it wants Iranian people to eat.

Iranian officials were saying from the first day that U.S. officials are not able to reduce Iran's oil export to zero, Rouhani noted, but they "kept repeating that they would do this and they recently admitted that they can not reduce Iran's oil export to zero". The bans had been lifted under the 2015 nuclear deal, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

Last week, Rouhani said Iran will proudly circumvent the United States sanctions, which he branded as cruel and illegal.

Tehran condemns Washington's starvation threat, saying Iran will survive despite U.S. sanctions.

The special representative for Iran at the US State Department Brain Hook said on Wednesday that Iraq will continue importing electricity and natural gas from Iran under an exemption from Washington's sanctions. "What we will see for at least the next couple months is continued compliance as Iran assesses the new cost-benefit analysis of staying in the deal".

After Iran made concessions on the nuclear program, in 2016 the USA authorities announced the lift of sanctions from 59 individuals (citizens of Iran and other countries), 385 enterprises, 77 planes and 227 ships.

U.S. President Donald Trump announced in May that Washington was withdrawing from an agreement on a nuclear program with Iran.

Although the Trump administration has not yet named the eight countries, the top importers of Iran's oil including China, India, South Korea, Turkey, Italy, the U.A.E. Japan and Taiwan, are expected to temporarily continue to buy Iranian oil. The United States re-introduced part of the sanctions against Iran on August 7.
