Iran's Rouhani threatens to cut off Gulf oil

Iran's President Hassan Rouhani struck a defiant stance against US sanctions on Tuesday, renewing his threat to cut off international oil sales from the Gulf. "America should know... it is not capable of preventing the export of Iran's oil," Rouhani said at a televised rally in Semnan province."If it ever tries to do so... no oil will be exported from the Persian Gulf," he added.
