Following the sanctions imposed on the ship and its captain, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said, "Having failed at piracy, the USA resorts to outright blackmail-deliver us Iran's oil and receive several million dollars or be sanctioned yourself".

"In the third phase the Iranian nuclear agency starting Friday will implement without limits everything that is needed for the expansion of domestic nuclear technology and scientific research", Rouhani said Wednesday evening. "We can't make it any more clear that we are committed to this campaign of maximum pressure". The US State Department has also said that any oil delivery to Syria from the tanker "enables the terrorism" of President Bashar al-Assad.

Such moves could reduce the time needed for Iran to amass enough material for a nuclear weapon if it wanted to build one.

Despite upping their ante, Kamalvandi said Iran will allow United Nations inspectors to continue to monitor nuclear sites.

That's a small gap from the 90 percent needed to made nuclear weapons, although Iran says it is not interested in pursuing such weapons.

Kamalvandi said Iran had the ability to go beyond 20% enrichment of uranium.

Iran's nuclear chief said on Sunday the European parties to the 2015 nuclear deal have failed to fulfil their commitments under the pact, a day after Tehran announced further breaches of limits on its nuclear activity set by the accord.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani speaks at a session of parliament to debate his proposed tourism and education ministers, in Tehran, Iran, Tuesday, Sept. 3, 2019.

Enforcing sanctions on oil products is more hard than crude and the USA would need to allocate more resources to curb the flow of oil products out of Iran, said Mallinson.

The US Treasury Department on Thursday warned that anyone around the world who helps fuel Iranian vessels blacklisted by Washington runs the risk of being designated as well.

Since May, Iran has begun to breach caps on its nuclear capacity set by the deal in retaliation for USA pressure on Iran to negotiate restrictions on its ballistic missile programme and support for proxy forces around the Middle East.

European powers opposed the US withdrawal and have sought to keep the deal alive.

France has nonetheless stepped up efforts, but minimal progress has been reported. However, questions likely will grow in Europe over Iran's intentions as satellite photos obtained by The Associated Press on Saturday showed an once-detained oil tanker Tehran reportedly promised wouldn't go to Syria was off its coast.

"For months now President Trump has said that he'd be happy to meet with Iranian leadership with no preconditions". However, Iranian authorities have insisted that Tehran never gave any guarantees that its tanker would not head to the war-torn country. "Sure, anything's possible. They would like to be able to solve their problem", he said, referring to inflation in Iran.

"The German government will carefully examine which individual steps Iran takes", he said. Iran now holds 241.6 kilograms of low-enriched uranium, 36.6 kilograms more than at the start of July, and 38.8 kilograms more than allowed under the nuclear agreement, the Vienna-based agency said Friday in the document seen by dpa.
