President Mugabe In Iran For Rouhani Inauguration

06 August, 2017, 00:43 | Author: Brian Mcdaniel

In a speech delivered on the occasion, the Iranian president strongly defended his internal and foreign policies over the past four years, stressing that the heavy participation of Iranian citizens in the last elections has demonstrated political progress and maturity that has been achieved in the country.

The Iranian president also highlighted the importance of the security of Northeast Asia, saying the country will also lend support for the stability and development of Asia.

"I confirm the vote and appoint you as president of the republic", Khamenei said on August 3 at a ceremony in Tehran that was attended by Iranian officials and foreign dignitaries.

Among them was EU's foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini, who coordinates follow-up of Iran's nuclear deal.

On Thursday, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran's supreme leader criticized the new USA sanctions on Tehran that were signed by President Donald Trump the previous day.

Meeting Mogherini before the ceremony in parliament, Rouhani called for greater efforts to uphold the 2015 nuclear deal struck by Iran and world powers despite the fresh U.S. sanctions passed last week.

Rohani, a 68-year-old self-proclaimed moderate, was reelected as Iran's president in May.

On Thursday, the first part of the inauguration took place, as Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei approved the results of the elections, held on May 19, and confirmed Rouhani as the country's president.

Trump signed a bill Wednesday that imposes mandatory penalties on those involved in Iran's ballistic missile program and anyone who does business with them. Provided below are brief descriptions of how the Act affects the existing USA sanctions programs targeting Russia, Iran, and North Korea.

Terrorists present at the inauguration included Sheikh Naim Qassem, the deputy secretary-general of Hezbollah - Iran's Shia proxy in Lebanon and Syria. It also imposes mandatory sanctions on the already-sanctioned Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps ("IRGC") and the IRGC-Quds Force (and their officials, agents, and affiliates) for their support for worldwide terrorism.

Amnesty International has called on the European Union to take a tougher stance after accusing Iran of a "vicious crackdown" that it says has dashed hopes of rights reform. Rouhani has to announce his new cabinet members to Parliament within 14 days.
