Austria To Lift Iranian Diplomat’s Immunity Over Alleged Bomb Plot

  • Iranian President Hassan Rouhani

Iranian officials in the past have threatened to block the Strait of Hormuz, a major oil shipping route, in retaliation for any hostile U.S. action against Iran.

Iran's president has called on the worldwide community to defy Washington's stated intention of choking Iranian oil exports, describing the plan as a careless act of criminal aggression that doesn't care about consequences. They have expressed strong disappointment at the USA withdrawal. Dubai also is the U.S. Navy's busiest port of call overseas.

According to the source, Iran remains an "important near neighbour" for India, and a major oil supplier, and the government hoped to have further discussions with the U.S.to understand the options it has on dealing with Tehran, given the sanctions proposed to kick in by November 4, 2017.

Iran's foreign minister dismissed the attack plot as a "false flag ploy" created to overshadow Rouhani's tour.

"Iran will survive this round of United States sanctions as it has survived before". This week the U.S. State Department reiterated its intention to get tough with all countries engaging with Iran for trade, energy and infrastructure projects.

"Insofar as it is possible for Iran, we shall remain party to the accord, we shall not quit the JCPOA (the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) on condition that we can also benefit from it", Rouhani said. "We don't keep it [to] ourselves", he said.

In an article on June 27 Foreign Policy said since Iran is fully abiding by the terms of the global 2015 nuclear accord "many countries are reluctant to go along with Washington's wishes" to cease importing oil from Iran.

Sweden beat Mexico 3-0, winning the group. "A World Cup is only comes around every four years, and we expected so much more". Mats Hummels headed over the top when unmarked six yards out in the closing stages, before South Korea's two late goals.

The company also said it "has the ability to increase oil production by several hundred thousand barrels of oil per day, should this be required to help alleviate any potential supply shortage in the market".

Rouhani's European trip will be of "prime importance" as it could "provide a more precise picture of cooperation between Iran and Europe", the Iranian foreign ministry spokesman said at the weekend.

But all the other signatories to the nuclear deal say they still support it.

And China, Iran's biggest buyer, will be even tougher to persuade to limit purchases.

"At the meeting, which will be held at the request of Iran, foreign ministers of Iran and five world powers will discuss a proposed European package and measures to protect the agreement", Iranian state news agency IRNA reported on Tuesday.

When asked at a news conference in Bern later on Tuesday whether those comments constituted a threat to interfere with the shipping of neighbouring countries, Rouhani said, "Assuming that Iran could become the only oil producer unable to export its oil is a wrong assumption ..."

Separately, Iran's interior minister Abdolreza Rahmani Fazli warned Tuesday that "if we close our eyes for 24 hours, 1 million refugees will go toward Europe through our Western borders" via Turkey.
