After Trump tweet, White House says Iran, not U.S., is 'inciting'

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani attends a meeting with Muslim leaders and scholars in Hyderabad India

The statements come a day after President TrumpDonald John TrumpGiuliani: Trump would agree to interview with Mueller if no questions on obstruction Haley: Russia "never will be" friend of US Massachusetts passes NASTY Women Act repealing 173-year-old abortion ban MORE's fiery Twitter threat aimed at Iran's President Rouhani, in which Trump warned Rouhani against explicitly threatening the U.S.in the future. "The prospect of President Trump starting a catastrophic war should concern us all, and we must be vigilant in stopping it".

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders addressed reporters Monday morning, saying President Trump is standing up against hostile country.

In May, Trump - who has made Iran his public enemy number one - announced the USA withdrawal from what he called a "defective" multinational nuclear deal with Tehran, and moved to reinstate punishing sanctions.

Iran reacted to Pompeo's speech as interference in its affairs, the semi-official Tasnim news agency reported.

Last week, Reuters reported that India's Oil Ministry has asked refiners to prepare for a "drastic reduction or zero" imports of Iranian oil from November, when usa sanctions against Iran start.

John Rood, the Pentagon's undersecretary of defense for policy, told CNN's Barbara Starr at the Aspen Security Conference in Aspen, Colorado, on Friday that the U.S. hadn't adjusted its military posture in response to threats from Iran.

"The president consults with his national security team on a daily basis", she said.

"I don't think that's warranted". "The president was not afraid to use force in Syria".

Iran was the second-biggest oil supplier to Indian State refiners between April and June, Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan said on Monday, as Tehran's steep discounts meant it replaced Saudi Arabia in second place.

Also Monday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised Trump's "tough stand" against Iran after the USA leader issued a stark warning to the Islamic Republic.

Bagheri said Iran had "never instigated war" and "wanted peace and stability in the region". The dollar was being offered for as much as 92,000 rials, compared with about 75,000 last week.

"Neither Iran, nor any other country is interested in escalating tensions in the region", he said.

The latest flare-up between American and Iran's presidents follows a speech by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Sunday calling Iranian leaders a "mafia".

Mr Pompeo said he wanted to try to stop countries importing Iranian oil by November as part of continued pressure on Tehran. In light of these protests and 40 years of regime tyranny, I have a message for the people of Iran: "The United States hears you; the United States supports you; the United States is with you".
