During the visit, Dr Rouhani paid tribute to the martyrs of Tir 7th, Shahrivar 8th, and the martyrs of the Islamic Revolution.
Trump has threatened to try to renegotiate the deal, which saw Iran accept curbs on its contested nuclear program in exchange for the lifting of some global economic sanctions. The sanctions relief has had a positive impact on the economy with oil exports up and GDP growth hitting 6% past year though expectations were higher.
During the short exchange, Mr Tillerson said that he does not feel Mr Trump should have to apologise to Israel for sharing the ally's classified intelligence with Russian officials during a White House meeting earlier this month. Rouhani, a cleric whose administration struck the 2015 landmark nuclear deal with world powers, decisively won a second term in Friday's election. The elections remain tightly controlled, however, and many candidates are excluded during a pre-election vetting process. In addition, it approves all legislation passed by Parliament to ensure its consistency with Islamic jurisprudence. "It's getting better day by day, but just because Rouhani has been re-elected doesn't mean that all these other issues are completely gone". "Whether it's greater or lesser based on the agreement, I'm not sure I can assess that.". Some of these will be challenged.

Comey Agrees To Testify Before The Senate Intelligence Committee

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said France is convinced that Iran under Rouhani will have "an important role in the pacification" of the region. And these are sanctions for terrorism, for human rights abuses. In mid-June another waiver, this time under the Iran Freedom and Counter-Proliferation Act, will need to be renewed if the JCPOA is to be sustained. Their concern remains even after former president Barrack Obama reassured them that they can continue doing business with Iranian banks.

In both cases, the USA sides with Saudi Arabia. In 2016, there were 19 "incidents at sea" between USA and Iranian vessels in the Persian Gulf. Women in Iran are also more likely to become actively involved in politics as at least 3 percent of ministerial positions and 5 percent of parliament seats in the country were held by women in 2010. Thank you for speaking with us. That link is missing today.
But in Iran, many were pushing for change. Bolstered by Iran, Assad has committed unspeakable crimes, and the United States has taken firm action in response to the use of banned chemical weapons by the Assad Regime - launching 59 tomahawk missiles at the Syrian air base from where that murderous attack originated. Mr. Obama's push for the JCPOA was driven by a desire to extricate US policy from this stranglehold and expand options.
Saudi Arabia, the Sunni monarchy that controls Islam's holiest sites, sees itself as the natural leader of the Muslim world and has used its lavish oil wealth to spread its austere version of the faith. Mr. Rouhani's challenges are just beginning.
