Iran says nuclear deal violated by new U.S. sanctions

India Can Count on Iran as Reliable Partner: VP

Mr Rouhani - being sworn in for a second term after winning presidential elections in May - said he had nothing to do with "newcomers to the world of politics" and urged "old-timers" to see the nuclear deal as an example of how to manage worldwide relations.

Iran's president does have the authority to declare a state of emergency or impose martial law as needed.

Over 100 of the world leaders and officials, including representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Federica Mogherini, attended Rouhani's oath-taking ceremony.

Based on the deal, nuclear-related sanctions on various Iranian business and financial sectors were lifted, but it put more strict limits on its nuclear program. "International engagement should not lead to ignoring hostility of the enemies", Khamenei said.

The White House says Iran is complying with the deal but Mr Trump says Iran is violating its spirit. He has repeatedly criticized the slow pace of economic recovery since most worldwide sanctions on Iran were lifted a year ago.

Rouhani will be sworn in on Saturday and then have two weeks to present his cabinet to parliament for a vote of confidence.

Iran said Thursday that new United States sanctions were a violation of its nuclear deal with world powers, piling pressure on President Hassan Rouhani as he starts his second term.

Russian Federation relations may deteriorate further - Tillerson
In a rare question-and-answer session, Tillerson recalled Trump's meeting with Sergey Lavrov, Putin's top diplomat, three months ago.

As pertaining to worldwide achievements in his first term in office, he referred to the signing of nuclear deal with six major world powers, namely Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the United States, which put an end to a decade-long dispute over the country's sensitive nuclear program.

Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei formally endowed President-elect Hassan Rouhani with executive authority on Thursday, according to Iran's official Tasnim news agency.

If there is one place in the world where the difference of opinion between Europe and the United States of America over how to deal with Iran will be most glaringly apparent, it will be in Tehran this Saturday. He added that Tehran has prepared measures that Iran would take against the US action.

President Trump has questioned the constitutionality of certain provisions of the new law on the basis that they displace the President's exclusive authority to take certain actions.

Referring to the problems created by the United States in the course of implementation of the JCPOA, Iran's Foreign Minister noted that the new U.S. administration is seeking to prevent the Islamic Republic of Iran from enjoying the advantages of the JCPOA.

It would also apply terrorism sanctions to Iran's prestigious Revolutionary Guard and enforce an arms embargo.
