Iran seeks partnership of France both at home and overseas

Mr Rouhani is a moderate cleric who helped secure a landmark 2015 nuclear deal with Western powers.

"The supporting allies, anti-terrorism and anti-Iranian rhetoric provides a cover for that", said Richard Dalton a former United Kingdom ambassador in the Middle East.Newly re-elected Iranian President Hassan Rouhani called Trump's speech a "show with no value" in an address in Tehran on Monday."The problem is that the Americans do not know our region and those who advise U.S. officials are misleading them".

"My administration will do its best to eliminate the extreme poverty", Rouhani, who was re-elected to the second term on May 19, said during his first presser in Tehran on May 22, Trend's correspondent reported from the event.

Rouhani said that Iranians are "waiting for this (US) government to be civil" and that "hopefully, things will settle down ... so we could pass more accurate judgments".

Mr Rouhani yesterday ridiculed United States strategy in the Middle East, dismissing Mr Trump's summit with Arab leaders on Sunday as "just a show".

The president added that "the issue of terrorism can not be solved through giving money to superpowers".

In the expert's words, although Iran's Hassan Rouhani evidently won more votes in the last presidential election than during the previous elections, the Iranian citizens have growing expectations in regard to ensuring certain liberalization processes inside the country and achieving success in the economy sphere.

He expressed the hope that diplomatic efforts would bear results and would pave the way for the Syrian people to decide on the future of their country.

While the U.S. and its allies accuse Iran for supporting terrorism and instances of Iranian involvement in terrorist acts can undoubtedly be cited, the nexus between religious extremism and terrorism is far stronger in the Sunni Arab world and has wider worldwide ramifications, including in our own subcontinent, with Saudi Wahhabi ideology spawning a host of violent extremist organisations including the al-Qaeda, the Islamic State, the Taliban and the like.

Some 42 million ballots were cast in the presidential election.

On the domestic front, the report said there's been a slow drain of human capital away from the Iranian energy sector. Instead, his administration has said it would closely police Iran's compliance with the bill and review it, with an eye toward possibly modifying it to make it stronger.

"We will uproot terrorism and will bring stability to region in 4 coming years", Rouhani said.

At a weekend summit in Riyadh, Trump accused Iran of funding and arming "terrorists, militias and other extremist groups" in Iraq, Yemen, Lebanon and backing President Bashar al-Assad in Syria's civil war. It was Iran, Syria, Hezbollah and Russian Federation.

French carmakers PSA PEUP.PA and Renault RENA.PA are taking advantage of their lack of USA operations by piling into a resurgent Iranian market that is still off-limits to rivals fearful that Trump's administration will impose sanctions.
