Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif recently criticized US foreign policies amid rising tensions.

The United States on Monday demanded that buyers of Iranian oil stop purchases by May 1 or face sanctions, ending six months of waivers which allowed Iran's eight biggest buyers, a lot of them in Asia, to continue importing limited volumes.

The British-Iranian mother was sentenced to five years in jail after being accused of spying by Tehran's Islamist regime, a charge she vehemently denies.

He added: "We have an Iranian lady in Australia who gave birth to a child in prison, not even on bail, inside prison, on an extradition request by the United States because she was responsible as a translator in a, whatever, in a purchase operation - purchase - of some transmission equipment for Iranian broadcasting company".

Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe, 41, was a project manager for the Thomson Reuters Foundation and lived in London when she was arrested in Iran in April 2016.

"I put this offer on the table publicly now - exchange them", he said.

"As if this lawlessness is not enough, the United States is also punishing those who seek to fulfill their multilateral obligations under Security Council resolution 2231, which calls for normalization of economic relations with Iran", stated Zarif. Fine. Let's not discuss that.

That weakens the effect of the measures and will frustrate members of Congress backing tough measures against Iran who are already concerned that the Trump administration won't fully enforce sanctions on Iranian oil.

Washington's enmity will receive an answer and Iran's people will not remain silent, Khamenei said, without elaborating.
