And so companies have a choice to either do business in Iran or in the United States.
Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards also kept up the anti-U.S. rhetoric in the build up to the United Nations session, calling President Donald Trump "evil and adventurous" and accusing him of waging economic war on Tehran.
However, on September 25, Trump gave a speech to the United Nations, and various world leaders laughed during it.
He referenced a list of United Nations bodies, from the International Criminal Court to the Human Rights Council, that his administration is working to undermine.
He said that the UN-backed International Criminal Court has "no jurisdiction, no legitimacy and no authority" and said that his administration - which has recently choked off aid to the Palestinians - would only support "our friends" in the future.
"The United States of America one day, sooner or later, will come back". He argued that issues like migration should not be regulated by an unelected global body.
"Ultimately, the only long-term solution to the migration crisis is to help people build more hopeful futures in their home countries", Trump said.
"In less than two years, my administration has accomplished more than nearly any administration in the history of our country", Trump bragged.
"I'm thrilled that every country in the room today has agreed to answer our call, and I want to thank each and every one of you for your commitment to this important initiative". Jacinda Ardern, the prime minister of New Zealand, affirmed this in an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
"Didn't expect that reaction, but that's okay", a smiling Trump responded.
President Donald Trump accused China of meddling in the 2018 elections in order to hurt him Wednesday.
President Rohani, seen as a moderate, has stopped short of ruling out meetings between the two countries. He has said that the Obama negotiated deal was highly flawed and unsustainable. The president also indicated that he was considering applying a tax on automobiles imported from Canada.
In an exchange with reporters after his speech, Trump expressed hope that the USA relationship with Iran could eventually follow the same trajectory as its relationship with North Korea - where the prospect of sanctions relief has led Pyongyang to discuss ending its nuclear program. He indicated that there would be "more to follow".
After that meeting, the top diplomats from those countries and the EU agreed to establish a financial facility in the European Union to facilitate payments for Iranian imports and exports including oil, a key move sought by Tehran as it attempts to fight back against the re-imposed USA sanctions. Trump pulled out, saying the agreement did not go far enough.
