Mr. Trump fired this online shot across the bow after the Iranian leader declared in Tehran, "America must understand well that peace with Iran is the mother of all peace, and war with Iran is the mother of all wars".
"We weren't afraid to tackle the regime at its highest level", said Mr. Pompeo, adding that Washington wants all countries to reduce their imports of Iranian oil to "as close to zero as possible" by November 4, or face American sanctions. Germany said threats of war were "never helpful".
Iran has faced the threat of USA sanctions since Trump decided in May to withdraw the United States from a 2015 agreement between world powers and Iran over its disputed nuclear programme.
"Indian refineries import crude oil from diverse sources including Iran, depending on technical and commercial considerations", Pradhan said, without elaborating if the refiners would cut imports from Tehran.

"And Iranians have heard them - albeit more civilized ones - for 40 years", he said, adding that Iran "has been around for millennia" and has witnessed the fall of empires, including its own, "which lasted more than the life of some countries".
Officials at the time said that plot was not done with an eye toward regime change, but rather to try to fuel public protests among Iranians themselves.
When Trump withdrew the United States from the Iran nuclear deal in May, he told aides and foreign leaders that his policy of maximum pressure had forced Kim to the bargaining table, and that a similar policy of overwhelming pressure would enable the United States to extract a better deal from Iran.
Mike Pompeo has threatened to impose the "strongest sanctions in history" on Iran in May during his first speech as Secretary of State. Back in May, however, President Trump chose to go against the vast majority of the worldwide community and pull the United States out of the deal.
