Mr Hossein noted that Iran had suffered terror attacks in the past and it could be impossible for the country to tolerate such activities.
Britain on its part asked Kenya not to increase its imports of Iranian oil at a time when the international community is increasing pressure on the country to demonstrate its nuclear programme. Britain noted the European Union recently implemented an embargo on Iranian oil.
Kenya had indicated on Monday that it had agreed to import four million tonnes of Iranian oil yearly, which translates to about 80,000 barrels daily.
