Mogherini's attendance at Rouhani's inauguration encourages Iranian impunity

President Mugabe is welcomed by Iranian Minister of Cooperatives Labour and Social Welfare Mr Ali Rabiei and Harare’s Chief envoy to the Middle East country Ambassador Nicholas Kitikiti on arrival in Tehran Iran for President Hassan Rouhani’s inaug

All the parties to the Iran nuclear deal are abiding by its terms, the European Union said Thursday, despite Tehran's charges that new United States sanctions breach the agreement. Among those in attendance at the ceremony was former President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who fell out of favour with the establishment and was notably barred from standing as a candidate.

The mounting crisis creates a hard situation for Rouhani, a 68-year-old moderate who won a second four-year term largely thanks to his efforts to fix relations with the West. The Trump administration hit the ground running, re-imposing sanctions against Iran in its first weeks in office and also instating restrictions against those who are complicit with Tehran.

On foreign policies, Leader underlined that "international interaction must not make us neglect enemy's plots as some of foreign states just seek destruction of Iran", he said.

On Wednesday, US President Donald Trump reluctantly signed the "Countering America's Adversaries through Sanctions Act", the law with which the US Congress slapped new sanctions on Russia, North Korea, and Iran, while limiting the Chief Executive's power to ease them. Javdanfar said the new US sanctions on Iran signed by Trump into law on Wednesday, along with measures against Russian Federation and North Korea would likely deter foreign investors and so undermine Rouhani's efforts to boost the economy.

Ray said the joint commission allowed for the Iranian view on new USA sanctions to be widely discussed.

"We will certainly not fall into the trap of U.S. policy and Trump, and our reaction will be very carefully considered".

Commenting on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, which was signed in 2015, Rouhani said: "The nuclear deal is a sign of Iran's goodwill on the worldwide stage".




"International engagement should not lead to ignoring hostility of the enemies", Khamenei said at the ceremony, broadcast live on state TV.

Following the nuclear deal, Washington and the European Union lifted sanctions related to Iran's atomic programme that the West alleged was for military purposes but Tehran said was peaceful.

Separately, on July 28, the Trump administration sanctioned six Iranian entities after Iran tested a space launching device.

Ayatollah Khamenei made the remarks during the endorsement ceremony of the 12th Iranian Presidency, state-run news agency IRNA reported.

Leader Ayatollah Khamenei delivers validation decree to President Rouhani at the start of his second term. The runner-up, Ebrahim Raisi, secured 38.5% of the votes.

A Hamas delegation has arrived in Tehran to participate in Iranian President-elect Hassan Rouhani's swearing-in ceremony on Saturday.
