Washington has been stepping up the political and economic pressure on Tehran since President Donald Trump took office in January 2017.

Oil prices appeared to be holding steady on Monday after the United States announced the end of sanctions waivers for several of Iran's largest oil customers.

"They have tried to bring the USA into a war", Zarif said, with the goal, "at least", of Iranian regime change.

Earlier in April relations between Washington and Tehran deteriorated after the US formally blacklisted the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) military unit as a foreign terrorist group, with Iran responding by first designating the US Central Command and then the entire US military as terrorists.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif says Tehran may pull out of the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NRT) as part of retaliatory measures as the United States tightens sanctions.

Zarif also said that Washington's allies in the Middle East, including Saudi Arabia, are pushing the United States towards war with Iran.

A year ago, the United States has increase endorses on Iran since President Donald Trump pulled back from its 2015 atomic accord with world powers. China is not happy, Turkey is not happy, Russian Federation is not happy.

Zarif's media interviews in the United States, which he gave while attending a United Nations conference, have definitely caught the attention of Iranian media.
