But he said Trump administration officials "speak with a different style, presumably because they're new to politics".

Rouhani was addressing Nelson Mandela Peace Summit at the United Nations headquarters in NY. In 2014, for example, Trump tweeted: "We need a President who isn't a laughing stock to the entire World".

Rouhani said Tehran would remain in the agreement - known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action - despite the USA withdrawal, as long as the other signatories held up their end of the deal to open the door to trade.

Earlier on Monday, European Union (EU)'s foreign and security policy chief Federica Mogherini said that the EU will set up a legal entity to facilitate legitimate financial transactions with Iran in light of the USA withdrawal from the global agreement on Tehran's nuclear program and the re-imposition of sanctions.

President Donald Trump's national security adviser John Bolton went after Iran in a fiery speech on Tuesday. They do not respect their neighbors or borders or the sovereign rights of nations.

He added, the USA has re-imposed sanctions on the regime, which are set to take effect on November 5, 2018. The sanctions have already caused turmoil in oil markets and led some analysts to predict $100 a barrel crude oil.

Bolivian leader Evo Morales launched a blistering critique of USA policy toward Iran as well as Trump's immigration policies that resulted in the separation of migrant children from their parents.

The session came a day after Trump anti-Iran remarks at General Assembly meeting. He spoke after Brazilian President Michel Temer.

That view did not necessarily have much support from the leaders from the U.N.'s 192 other countries, however. "Even worse, some countries abused their openness to dump their products, subsidize their goods, target our industries and manipulate their currencies to gain unfair advantage over our country".

"Those days are over".

India should reduce or stop crude oil import from Iran: Moody’s
OPEC, along with other suppliers except for Russian Federation , began to limit their output in order to raise crude values. Oil producers from OPEC and Russian Federation met over the weekend but ruled out any immediate increase in output.


Since withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal, the USA has reimposed sanctions on the regime, and Trump is urging reluctant partners to do the same.

Russian Federation was also a topic of the president's speech, including Moscow's sale of S-300 missiles to Syria.

The economic war that the United States has initiated under the rubric of new sanctions not only targets the Iranian people, but also entails harmful repercussions for the people of other countries and that war has caused a disruption in the state of global trade.

U.N, Secretary-General Antonio Guterres says the principle of multinational cooperation "is under fire precisely when we need it most".

A gavel-wielding Mr Trump took a swipe at China, accusing Beijing of working against his Republican Party in upcoming midterm elections as payback for their growing trade war, a charge China's foreign minister said was "unwarranted". It came a day after Trump told the United Nations he rejects what he calls the ideology of globalism.

The laughter in the first moments of Trump's address evoked a campaign line Trump frequently deployed against his predecessor Barack Obama - who embraced worldwide engagement - suggesting that due to weak American leadership, "the world is laughing at us".

"In less than 2 years my administration has accomplished more than nearly any administration in the history of our country", boasted Trump.

The Iranian President severely criticised Trump's policies, claiming they resemble "a Nazi disposition" and added his country opposes to the US President's "bullying".

Trump sought to convince his audience that he has achieved qualified success in his biggest foreign policy gambit - his efforts to convince North Korea to dismantle its nuclear weapons program.
