Iranian president rules out possibility to talk with U.S. "under current situation"


Trump's tweeted early Monday: "If Iran wants to fight, that will be the official end of Iran".

Iran, meanwhile, announced that it has quadrupled its uranium-enrichment production capacity.

Zarif also used the hashtag #NeverThreatenAnIranian, a reference to a comment he made during intense negotiations for the 2016 nuclear accord.

United States President Donald Trump said earlier on Monday that Iran would be met with "great force" if it attempted anything against USA interests in the Middle East, adding that Teheran has been very hostile towards Washington. The U.S. has sent an aircraft carrier and other resources to the region amid undisclosed threats officials indicated are linked to Iran.

Mr Trump told reporters as he departed the White House for an event in Pennsylvania that he was willing to have talks with Iran "when they're ready".

Earlier this month, officials of the United Arab Emirates claimed that four oil transport ships were sabotaged.

"The enemy constantly wanted Iran to start the tension, but we did not do it", he said.

"Right after threatening Iran, they were forced to say they do not seek a war", Rouhani said in televised remarks on Tuesday. Yet many observers worry any mistake by either side could lead to events out of their control. "But you do have situations like Iran, you can't let them have nuclear weapons - you just can't let that happen".

That multilateral accord, which several European countries remain committed to, saw Iran agree to curb its nuclear programme in exchange for a lifting of global sanctions. He added that the government had informed the International Atomic Energy Agency about its move. "This is a false report", Trump tweeted on Monday. No injuries were reported. Spanberger, a former Central Intelligence Agency officer, said she finds numerous administration's recent statements on Iran to be "deeply troubling".

The errant rocket fired into the Green Zone, one of the most heavily fortified enclaves on the planet, was immediately attributed by the United States media to Iran or its "proxies", even though no one has claimed responsibility for the incident and there are a multitude of factions and people in the country who have every reason to want to lob a missile at the U.S. embassy, or for that matter, at the seat of Iraq's corrupt bourgeois government.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif warned that the United States was "playing a very, very risky game" with military deployments.

Mr Zarif posted his own message Monday on Twitter, saying Trump had been "goaded" into "genocidal taunts". "Try respect; it works". The regime has quadrupled its uranium production and USA intelligence shows Iranian proxy groups planning tactical surprise attacks in the Persian Gulf.

They are planning to talk with lawmakers after days of suspicions expressed by US officials that Iran was responsible for attacks last week on two Saudi oil-pumping stations and an earlier sabotage of four oil tankers. "It's not for a president to, by a series of provocations, blunder us down the path where war becomes inevitable". Under the deal Iran can enrich uranium at 3.67%, well below the 90% purity required to make bombs and the 20% level to which Iran enriched before the deal. But Western nations have questioned this claim.

In an interview aired Sunday on the Fox News Channel, Trump called the nuclear deal a "horror show". "If they call, we will certainly negotiate, but this is going to be up to them", he said.

The rocket fell in the Green Zone which houses government buildings and embassies and caused no casualties, the latest in a series of regional attacks the United States believes may have been inspired by Iran.
