"We would like to see the European Union move sanctions that target Iran's missile programme", Hook told reporters aboard Pompeo's plane as he travelled to Brussels.

"America should know.it is not capable of preventing the export of Iran's oil", Mr Rouhani said at a televised rally in Semnan Province on Tuesday.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani gave the warning on Tuesday, following comments from the U.S. that sanctions have already succeeded in cutting Iranian oil exports.

In December, the United States announced it would be sending an aircraft carrier strike group to the Persian Gulf in the near future after a decades-long absence of the U.S. fleet in the region.

The United States and the Israeli regime can not stand the idea of a powerful and dignified Iran, and the Iranian nation will not bow to them, Rouhani highlighted, adding, "the United States failed in launching a coup in our country".

The Trump administration restored sanctions on Iran's energy industry to try and pressure Tehran to give up its nuclear and missile tests.

Rohani's threat to block the strait has been welcomed by Iranian hard-liners like General Qassem Soleimani, the commander of the powerful Quds Force within the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps.

After its repeated threats of disrupting other countries' oil shipment through the Gulf, if Washington presses ahead with efforts to halt Iranian oil export, the United States administration responded on Tuesday to Iran, where it dismissed any possibility of disruption in the navigation movement and rejected Tehran's provocations in the region. "The United States will continue to work with our partners to ensure freedom of navigation and the free flow of commerce in global waterways", Hook said, according to the Associated Press news agency. Officials also said the carrier group will support the US war in Afghanistan as well as operations against remnant ISIS pockets in Iraq and Syria.

"No hyperinflation, no massive unemployment will threaten us".

"I think right now, while we have the military option on the table, our preference is to use all of the tools that are at our disposal diplomatically", he added.
