In a tweet on late Sunday, Trump warned his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani that if Tehran threatened the United States again, it would suffer "consequences the likes of which few have ever suffered before".

"America should know that peace with Iran is the mother of all peace, and war with Iran is the mother of all wars", Rouhani said as he rebuked Trump's policies regarding Iran.

Prominent Iranian analyst Seed Leilaz downplayed the war of words, describing it as "the storm before the calm".

Iran's supreme leader on Saturday backed President Hassan Rouhani's suggestion that Iran may block Gulf oil exports if its own exports are stopped, according to his official website.

Trump's tweet, posted in all-capital letters: "NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE". "BE CAUTIOUS!" he tweeted.

Also on Sunday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo launched a blistering attack on Iran in remarks at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in California.

Bolton also warned in May during an interview on CNN's "State of the Union" that it was "possible" the US may impose sanctions on European companies that keep doing business with Iran.

U.S. officials say that the Trump Administration has formally launched an "offensive" campaign of speeches and online statements aimed to erode support for Iran's government and to foment pressure against them.

Oil prices rose Monday after President Donald Trump delivered Iranian President Hassan Rouhani a frenzied threat on Twitter, promising in all caps that Iran would suffer grave "consequences" if it continued to threaten the US.

Gheibparvar's comments were reported by the semi-official ISNA news agency.

"He's venting", said Aaron David Miller, a former Middle East negotiator for presidents of both parties.

Leilaz told The Associated Press he was not "worried about the remarks and tweets", and that "neither Iran, nor any other country is interested in escalating tensions in the region".

"The level of corruption welcomed under Iranian leaders shows that Iran is welcome under something that resembles the mafia more than the government", said Pompeo. "And he's going to stand up and make sure we're protecting Americans and certainly protect the world from nuclear proliferation", Sanders added.

Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif responded Monday on Twitter, writing, "Colour US UNIMPRESSED".

Mr Pompeo said: "The proud Iranian people are not staying silent about their government's many abuses".

Germany is calling for restraint amid escalating rhetoric between the leaders of Iran and the United States. Still, there has been little tangible progress in a global push to rid North Korea of its nuclear weapons program since the historic Trump-Kim Jong Un summit on June 12.
