Pompeo's speech on Sunday came as US President Donald Trump and his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani traded angry threats amid rising tensions between the two countries.

The United States will work with countries that import Iranian oil "to get imports as close to zero as possible" by November 4, Pompeo said.

The comment - similar in tone and wording he used past year in warning North Korea about its rapidly improving nuclear weapons program - came hours after Rouhani said the USA risked the "mother of all wars" in a conflict with Iran.

Hassan Rouhani cautioned the United States President about pursuing hostile policies against Iran, saying "America should know ... war with Iran is the mother of all wars".

Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei was reported by Al Jazeera to have backed Rouhani's earlier statements to disrupt regional oil shipments.

Many ordinary Iranians are largely skeptical of the Trump administration's support for Iranian citizens because of the harsh USA sanctions on the country and a visa ban imposed on Iranians barring them from entering the United States. Addressing a crowd of Iranian Americans, Pompeo had said that the people of Iran had been living under a tyrannical rule since the last 40 years and the USA stands by their protest.

"The United States hears you.

BE CAUTIOUS!" The comments came at the same time as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was speaking at a Reagan Forum in Simi Valley, California, on the topic of Iran. Trump also moved to reimpose sanctions lifted by the deal. Pompeo's remarks were aimed in part at Iranian-Americans and Iranians living in the US.

"But the step from there to think that the Trump administration - that now is undermining democracy in the United States - is the answer to Iran's lack of democracy, is a major leap of faith that I don't think most people would take".

Pompeo vowed that the United States would continue to support the "long-ignored voice of the Iranian people" and would continue to "spotlight the abuses" perpetrated against the country's citizens by their government.

The IRNA news agency, a government mouthpiece, also said on Monday that Trump's Twitter missive was only mimicking and copying Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif who had in the past warned the West to "never threaten an Iranian".

Pompeo said the Iranian government resembled a "mafia".

In naming Iranian officials who have amassed fortunes while the people struggle, Pompeo cited "thieving thug" Sadeq Larijani, head of the Iranian Judiciary, who he said is now worth $300 million.

Several members of the Trump administration and Trump's circle have been outspoken hawks on Iran. The United States supports you.

The 2015 agreement was in response to fears that Iran was developing a nuclear bomb.
