The unnamed official said that the message has already been conveyed to European diplomats, multiple media outlets reported, but that China, India and Turkey have yet to be consulted.
India finds itself in a hard position as the Donald Trump regime in the United States is adamant to stop all countries from importing oil from Iran. Iran, which is the third-biggest oil and second-biggest natural gas producer in the world, is to be barred from selling its oil.
"Iran exports a total of 2.5 million barrels per day of crude and condensate and eliminating it easily and in a period of a few months is impossible", the Iranian official was quoted as saying.
Last month, President Donald Trump announced the US was leaving the 2015 deal, in which sanctions on Iran - including its energy sector - were eased in exchange for Tehran agreeing to roll back its nuclear program. China is even a signatory to that deal, and nearly certainly won't agree to stop buying Iranian oil just because the United States tells them they can't.
The United States is pushing for Japan and other major economies to halt imports of Iranian crude oil by November as part of coordinated sanctions on the Islamic republic, a senior U.S. State Department official said Tuesday in Washington. The State Department official said that secondary sanctions against Iran are not new.
Though he also said: "I would be hesitant to say zero waivers ever".

England break record in win over Panama
Southgate will hope the conclusion is reached by conventional means and England can continue to ride a wave of positivity. There is no denying it, England did the business and then some in their second game of the 2018 World Cup this afternoon.
India and China traditionally used to get a waiver from sanctions and kept trading with Iran even before the 2015 agreement, so speculation is rife as to whether they will manage to find workarounds this time.
But the official said that Trump administration officials have been visiting European and Asian countries to say that the US expects their imports to be zeroed out by the time the grace period ends.
Videos showed protesters confronting police in the capital, Tehran, as the Iranian rial plunged to 90,000 to the dollar - double the government rate of 42,000 rials to $1. "But we will not sacrifice our independence", said Rouhani in an address broadcast on state television.

In 2010, the Reserve Bank of India ceased using a Tehran-based regional body, the Asian Clearing Union, to handle transactions with Iran.
If India believed that just like the first round of Iran sanctions, it could negotiate a softer deal with the U.S., those hopes were dashed. The demonstrators believe that Iran's expansionist policies cause both economic difficulties and diplomatic disagreements, resulting in the sanctions. "India has increased oil purchases from Iran to almost pre-2012 levels after sanctions were lifted, and in May 2016 India agreed to transfer to Iran about Dollars 6.5 billion that it owed for Iranian oil shipments but which was held up for payment due to sanctions", the report said.
