US can't be trusted, Iran's Rouhani tells North Korea

The message back to Iran from US Central Command was, "We are aware of what's going on and we remain ready to protect ourselves", Votel said.

He has said the deal "failed to achieve the fundamental objective of blocking all paths to an Iranian nuclear bomb" and did not address Tehran's "malign activities, including its ballistic missile programme and its support for terrorism".

Mogherini added that the EU's member states were doing all they could to save the nuclear deal with Iran, but admitted Trump's new Iran policy could still wreck the JCPOA.

Iran's president Hassan Rouhani has threatened to shut down the strait in response to sanctions re-imposed on the Iranian regime this week by Trump, who in May withdrew from a 2015 agreement easing sanctions on Iran in exchange for restrictions on its nuclear programs. But that has proved hard: European companies have quit Iran, arguing that they can not risk their US business.

He doubled down on that sentiment Wednesday saying that before U.S. sanctions "nobody supported Iran".

China and Russian Federation have repudiated new United States sanctions on Iran, pledging to maintain trade ties with Tehran after President Donald Trump warned countries against doing business with the Islamic Republic.

Recorded Future's Moriuchi anticipated that businesses most at risk were those victimized in Iranian cyberattacks between 2012 and 2014 - they include banks and financial services, government departments, critical infrastructure providers, and oil and energy. The sanctions target transactions with US dollar banknotes, certain transactions related to the Iranian rial, and Iran's automotive sector, among other areas.

The sanctions imposed this month prohibit Iran from using USA dollars, the primary currency for global financial transactions and oil purchases, and restrict Iranian trade in metals, carpets and other goods.

Despite the increased tensions, Votel said the Iranians' continued professional actions in waterways near its country that in recent years saw dozens of precarious interactions, including incidents that resulted in warning shots being fired. Thus, it is hard for India to stop doing business with Tehran.

"We have ceased our already restricted activities in Iran in accordance with the applicable sanctions", a company statement said. "Anyone doing business with Iran will NOT be doing business with the United States".

In this photo released by the official website of the office of the Iranian Presidency, Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati speaks during inaugural meeting of the Assembly of Experts in Tehran, May 24, 2016.

Other video distributed Wednesday showed a heavy police presence in a number of places, including a government security convoy stationed along a major highway near Bandar Abbas, in apparent anticipation of possible protests in the area.

The statement concluded by saying, "Iran must know that Washington is determined to send a powerful message that its aggressive, bellicose behavior must change dramatically, or else it faces serious economic consequences".

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

Iran has dismissed a last-minute offer from the Trump administration for talks, saying it could not negotiate while Washington had reneged on the 2015 deal to lift sanctions.
