Rouhani had said to a group of Iranians now living in Switzerland on Tuesday that if the United States tried to prevent Iran from exporting its oil, "they do not understand what it means, because it would be totally nonsense that Iran's oil is not exported while at the same time the region's oil is exported".

Describing the Friday meeting as important, Iranian officials have said that key for them is to ensure measures that guarantee oil exports do not halt, and that Tehran still has access to the SWIFT global bank payments messaging system.

Their foreign ministers were holding talks in Vienna, where the accord was signed in 2015 with the aim of stopping Iran from building the atomic bomb in return for sanctions relief that promised greater trade and investment for the country.

Iranians have complained that the hoped-for rise in foreign investment and trade after the deal has not materialised. Washington has since told countries they must stop buying Iranian oil from November 4 or face financial measures.

Rouhani was quoted by state media and on his website after calls with French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel as having told them he was disappointed with their package which did not go far enough. The rial currency has fallen, prices have risen and the country has been hit by street protests and strikes.

What Iran expects from other signatories to the accord is to consider Iranians' nuclear, political and economic rights addressed in the deal, Zarif told reporters ahead of the meeting.

Rouhani told Amano that USA sanctions were a "crime and aggression" that other nations should resist, according to IRNA.

"We expected a vivid plan from the three European countries" of Germany, France and Britain, two months after the USA pullout of the JCPOA, the Iranian president noted.

Trump in May slammed the nuclear accord signed under his predecessor Barack Obama as "horrible" and "defective at its core", earning applause from Iran s regional rivals Saudi Arabia and Israel.

Having threatened, on several occasions, to resume its uranium enrichment programme, Iran is attempting to obtain forms of "economic compensation" from European countries, given the USA withdrawal.

Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has vowed that Iran "will never tolerate both suffering from sanctions and nuclear restrictions".

An Austria-based Iranian diplomat was among four people arrested on suspicion of plotting an attack on an Iranian opposition group in France last week.

One of those detained was a diplomat attached to the Iranian embassy in Austria.

Tehran dismissed it is an orchestrated "false flag ploy", created to discredit Iran and overshadow Rouhani's trip to Europe.
