  • The Grand Bazaar in Tehran Iran

Motahari's open letter to Jafari was published before Iran's supreme leader and President Hassan Rouhani had responded to Trump's offer.

Heshmatollah Falahatpisheh, who heads the parliamentary committee on national security and foreign policy, suggested a USA return to the nuclear deal would be needed before Tehran could think of negotiating.

Of course, this can be a good opportunity to state the facts to the dear people of my country, for they are the true owners of the country, from whose votes my and your legitimacy comes from.

Last month, when talking about Iran's right to the Strait of Hormuz, Rouhani commented that Americans "must understand that war with Iran is the mother of all wars and peace with Iran is the mother of all peace".

Well, in the case of the Iran deal reached during former President Obama's administration, Oman played a big part in making sure that panned out.

Starting this week, Washington will re-impose sanctions on Iran's purchases of US dollars, its trade in gold and precious metals, and its dealings with metals, coal and industrial-related software.

Iran acquired five new commercial aircraft on Sunday, a day before the USA begins restoring sanctions that had been lifted under the 2015 nuclear accord with world powers. "I will meet, or not meet, it doesn't matter - it is up to them!" In August and November Iran faces two new waves of sanctions that will shut off their access to USA banking and oil exports.


In response, Donald Trump sent an explosive, all-caps tweet telling Mr Rouhani to "never, ever threaten the United States again" and "be cautious!".

Mohammad Ali Jafari, commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), jumped the gun and said the Iranian people would not permit any politician to sit down and talk to Trump. In that case, Trump threatened "fire and fury" before holding a summit with North Korea leader Kim Jong Un.

That's according to two European diplomats involved in negotiations with the Trump administration over how sanctions would be re-imposed.

"You are not in a position to incite the Iranian nation against Iran's security and interests".

As of 0401 GMT Tuesday, the Iran government can no longer buy U.S. banknotes and broad sanctions will be slapped on Iranian industries, including its rug exports. "Plus the difference is there's sort of worldwide consensus on North Korea whereas Iran is slightly divisive because Europeans are still wedded to the deal".

"Threats, sanctions and PR stunts won't work".
