A senior USA official said on Tuesday that countries buying oil from Iran should prepare to halt all imports of it starting in November or face punishment.

"India follows only United Nations sanctions and not unilateral sanctions by any country", she said when asked about New Delhi's response to the U.S. decision to withdraw from a 2015 key nuclear agreement and re-impose sanctions against Tehran.

Responding to questions, the official said these countries should start reducing the import of oil from Iran now and bring it to zero by November 4.

A USA delegation will visit the Middle East next week to urge Gulf producers to ensure global oil supplies as Iran is cut out of the market when US sanctions are reimposed on Nov.4, a State Department official said.

"Their (India and China) companies will be subject to the same sanctions that everybody else's are if they engage in those sectors of the economy that are sanctionable, where there were sanctions imposed prior to 2015". And these issues may even figure in discussions at the inaugural 2+2 meeting of the foreign and defence ministers of the two countries on July 6 in Washington DC. "We are not granting waivers", an official told reporters.

The state department official said he has met with European and Asian allies and will be returning to Europe this week. We want to keep our journalism open and accessible and be able to keep providing you with news and analyses from the frontlines of Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish World. Indian government sources said last week that New Delhi was looking to revive a rupee trade mechanism to settle part of its oil payments to Iran, fearing foreign channels to pay Tehran might close.

The demonstrations appeared to lessen slightly on Tuesday after protesters forced Tehran's Grand Bazaar to shut down temporarily the day before.

Trump ordered the reimposition of US sanctions against Tehran that were suspended under the accord.

"For the vast majority of countries they are willing to adhere and support our approach to this because they also view" Iran's behavior as a threat, the official added.

The Iranian government is implementing new plans to control rising prices, including banning imports of over 1,300 products, preparing its economy to resist threatened United States sanctions.

In comments on the sidelines of a judicial conference on Tuesday, Abbas Jafari Dowlatabadi said those arrested for the Monday's disorderly conduct in Tehran and closure of the grand bazaar are not among shop owners or merchants.

According to Reuters, Mohammad Shariatmadari, Iran's Industries and trade minister, slapped the import ban on 1,339 goods from overseas, including home appliances, textile products, footwear, leather products, furniture, and healthcare products.

Economic sanctions against Iran were lifted in the 2015 nuclear agreement in exchange for curbs on its nuclear program.

"There is a level of frustration that people have with regard to the regime activity and behavior, the enrichment of the military and clerical elite and the squeezing out of the life of the economy", the senior State Department official said.
