"America has been defeated by the Islamic Republic over the past 40 years", he said.

Washington, however, had to go back on its pledge to zero Iran's oil exports, allowing eight top customers of the country to continue their purchases.

He said he could not rule out that the US administration would extend the waivers beyond six months.

But Mr Rouhani struck a defiant tone, saying that Iran would "continue selling oil".

"Iranian exports and production had been declining steadily in advance".

Speaking in Tehran on Sunday, Brigadier General Hossein Salami said that Iran's power has reached a level, that "we can threaten the vital interests" of a country such as the U.S. He described the sanctions as the "strongest tool" the USA holds, before resorting to military means, to pressure the Iranian regime to adhere to its demands.

President Trump announced in May that his administration was withdrawing from what he called the "worst ever" agreement negotiated by the United States.

Foreign minister Zarif said Washington had made itself more isolated by pursuing the sanctions. In his presidential statement, Trump called on the regime to abandon its nuclear ambitions, change its "destructive behaviour", respect the rights of its people, and return in good faith to the negotiating table. "The objective of this secretive communication is to give the impression of Iran's willingness to compromise and thus prevent the further deterioration of the relationship with the USA lest the Iran hawks in Washington push for military action". There was no bridge too far for Obama in seeking to align the United States with the mullahs of Iran.

The United States officially reimposed all penalties that had been lifted as part of the Iranian nuclear deal as the Trump administration added almost 700 targets, including 50 Iranian financial institutions, to a sanctions list Monday.

Senior Iranian officials have dismissed concerns about the impact to its economy. "Secretary Pompeo has been very clear that we have an ear open to what is possible".

Former New York Times reporter Michael Gordon, now with the Wall Street Journal, reports on the related reorientation of American foreign policy in "Trump digs in for a long cold war with Iran" (accessible here via Outline). "The main objective from the USA side is to force Iran to accept most - if not all - of its 12 conditions and demands". Malek's Arab News article has more on this point.

"We are in a situation of economic war, confronting a bullying power".

The oil and financial sanctions end all the economic benefits the U.S. granted to Tehran for its 2015 nuclear deal with world powers, even though Iran has been abiding by the accord that saw it limit its enrichment of uranium. Washington says it wants a new deal with Iran, curtailing its regional interventions and missile programme - demands which have been flatly rejected by Tehran.

Meanwhile, in Tehran, demonstrators poured onto the streets to mark the 39 anniversary of the occupation of the USA embassy there, an action that precipitated a protracted hostage standoff that helped tank President Carter's chances at re-election and almost took down the Reagan administration amid the Iran-Contra scandal.

"Our youth, across the country, support independence".

More than 700 individuals, entities, vessels and aircraft are now on the sanctions list, including major banks, oil exporters and shipping companies.
