The US is incapable of preventing Iran from exporting its oil and any attempt to stop oil tankers from passing through the Persian Gulf will result in the vital waterway being shut down, Iran's President Hassan Rouhani has said. In a televised address on Tuesday, Rouhani dismissed Washington's stated desire to reduce Tehran's oil exports to zero, and said that Iran would take retaliatory action against any efforts to do so. "America should know that we are selling our oil and will continue to sell our oil and they are not able to stop our oil exports," he said. He went on to warn that "if one day they want to prevent the export of Iran's oil, then no oil will be exported from the Persian Gulf."
