Brian Hook, US Special Representative for Iran and Senior Policy Advisor to the Secretary of State, made the comment during a call with reporters days after Washington said it would end all exemptions to sanctions against Iran, demanding countries halt imports from Tehran from May or face punitive action.

The United States re-imposed sanctions against Iran's oil exports last November, but initially allowed its eight biggest buyers limited imports for another half-year.
