Rouhani says conflict with Iran would be 'mother of all wars'

Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei speaks live on television after casting his ballot in the Iranian presidential election in Tehran

"This would only lead to regret", the official government news agency IRNA quoted Rohani as saying at a July 22 gathering of Iranian diplomats.

Iran's power is deterrent and we have no fight or war with anybody but the enemies must understand well that war with Iran is the mother of all wars and peace with Iran is the mother of all peace.

The Iranians described the USA move as an economic war, said the report.

Rouhani also appeared to refer to a recent report that the Trump administration is using speeches and online activities to try to create a swell of internal dissatisfaction with the regime.

Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei backed his president and said: 'If Iran's oil is not exported, no regional country's oil will be exported.

"You can not provoke the Iranian people against their own security and interests", he said in a televised speech at a gathering of Iranian diplomats in Tehran.

Iran's top diplomat calls on the remaining signatories of the Iran nuclear deal to take practical steps to salvage the accord in the wake of United States withdrawal.

Iran faces increased US pressure and looming sanctions after Trump's decision to withdraw the United States from a 2015 worldwide deal over Iran's nuclear programme.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani had previously hinted that Tehran could shut the Strait of Hormuz - a strategic waterway that handles as much as 20 percent of the world's oil. He made it clear that Tehran will not buckle under the economic pressure from Washington.

Europe, Russia, and China all want the deal to survive.

The US has provided a list of 12 demands that says Tehran needs to accept if it seeks relief from Washington's threats. "Or are they prepared to stand against this?"

Oil-rich Iran has been seeking a way out of an economic crisis with its currency losing value rapidly as concern has grown about sanctions after the US backed out of a multilateral agreement with Iran in May.

"Negotiations with the Europeans do not to stop; however, we should not linger, waiting for the European pack", said Khamenei.

"The word and even the signature of the Americans can not be relied upon, so negotiations with America are of no avail", he told Foreign Ministry officials.
