US President Donald Trump is the "main culprit" to blame for a recent surge in oil prices, Iranian Oil Minister Bijan Namdar Zanganeh said on Wednesday.

"The main culprit of the price hikes ... and the destabilisation of the market is Mr Trump and his disruptive and illegal policies," Zanganeh said on state television, after the US president hit out at OPEC accusing it of "ripping off the rest of the world".
