National security adviser John Bolton backed Trump's tweet Monday, telling reporters in a statement, "I spoke to the president over the last several days, and President Trump told me that if Iran does anything at all to the negative, they will pay a price like few countries have ever paid before".

As part of that move, the Trump administration last month said all countries must stop importing Iranian oil by November or face sanctions.

President Donald Trump on Sunday warned Iran of consequences "the likes of which few throughout history have ever suffered", if it threatens the United States.

However, during a short briefing with Iranian diplomats, Rouhanni cautioned president Trump that "America should know that peace with Iran is the mother of all peace, and war with Iran is the mother of all wars", "Mr Trump, don't play with the lion's tail, this would only lead to regret".

"Those who fear this insane president's psychological warfare will know that America will not be content with anything less than our annihilation", said Gheypour.

He said despite poor treatment by their leaders, "the proud Iranian people are not staying silent about their government's many abuses", Pompeo said.

"He's venting", said Aaron David Miller, a former Middle East negotiator for presidents of both parties.

Press secretary Sarah Sanders says that "if anybody's inciting anything, look no further than to Iran".

"Whenever Europe has sought an agreement with us, the White House has sown discord", Rouhani said.

"The idea that problems can be resolved through negotiations or relations with the United States is a major error", he added. In them, he said Iran's 1979 revolution had borne "bitter fruit".

Iran's supreme leader on Saturday backed President Hassan Rouhani's suggestion that Iran may block Gulf oil exports if its own exports are stopped, according to his official website.

Iran's currency has plunged nearly 50 percent in value in the past six months against the United States dollar, prompting a rare strike last month by traders in Tehran's Grand Bazaar. Still, there has been little tangible progress in a global push to rid North Korea of its nuclear weapons program since the historic Trump-Kim Jong Un summit on June 12.
