Iran's President labels Trump's visit 'just a show'

On Monday, Rouhani, however, said that Iran will continue to test its missiles anytime if there is a "technical need", and it will not seek the permission of any other country to do so.

Furthermore, he dismissed the labelling of Lebanon's Hezbollah Shiite group as "terrorists".

Iran, Russia and Turkey are now cooperating to restore ceasefire in order to create a calm situation for the people in Syria, he said.

Steinmeier expressed hope that Iran would play "constructive" and "responsible" role in helping settle conflicts in the Middle East. He had earlier condemned "humiliation and threats" against Iran from the global community, following his victory.

Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi has reacted to Trump's remarks, and urged United States to stop supplying arms to Saudi Arabia, which is one of the "main sponsors of terrorism".

He said the Islamic Republic is still waiting to understand what the Trump administration wants.

The moderate-leaning Rouhani defeated his conservative rival Seyed Ebrahim Raeesi on Friday, partly on promises of continued détente with the West after successfully negotiating the historic 2015 nuclear deal. While that effort was somewhat fitful, the president can now claim the support of reformers who prevailed in elections for Iran's municipal governments that were also held last week.

Rouhani beat his main challenger, conservative ex-prosecutor Ebrahim Raisi in the first round of the election, polling almost 57 percent of the vote and winning another four-year term as president.

"Our missiles are for our defense and for peace, they are not offensive". The direct evolution of residential projects in Tehran is indicative of a powerful metamorphosis of life and culture within Iran's capital city as it charges into the 21st century.

Iran's worldwide relations have improved markedly since the nuclear deal was signed in July 2015 but they are still strained with the United States. "Who can say the region will experience total stability without Iran?" he asked. "It is a government that speaks openly of mass murder, vowing the destruction of Israel, death to America, and ruin for many leaders and nations in this very room".

Rouhani said that if $240 billion is annually invested in the economy, including $20 billion of foreign funds that are to be attracted, creation of 950,000 new jobs per year is possible.

France has said it backs Trump's call to strengthen the monitoring of the deal, but that it is committed to implementing it, including the lifting of sanctions.

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) said the re-election of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani does not change the imperative that the world must be vigilant and oppose the regime's internal and external aggressions. He called on the world to isolate Iran.

However, hours after Rouhani's're-election', Donald Trump arrived in Saudi Arabia for his inaugural visit and gave a speech about the dangers of extremism and how he plans to fight it.
