After meeting with the Supreme Leader, President Rouhani visited the mausoleum of the late Founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran to renew allegiance to him and the martyrs of the Islamic Revolution and Sacred Defence and said: "We are committed to implement and realise the promises that we made to people".

"Iran is committed to reach this level of trade between the two neighbors and now is a good opportunity to realize areas on interest to the two countries", Rouhani said.

In the past, "Iran and the USA have experienced bends and turns in their relations, and the United States has always failed in its policies, including exerting pressures and sanctions" against Iran, Rouhani said in his press conference following Friday's landslide victory in the country's presidential election.

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

The foes "think that our power is restricted only to missiles, while our power lies in this nation's faith", he added.

On May 22, Iran's newly re-elected President Hassan Rouhani ridiculed USA strategy in the Middle East, dismissing Donald Trump s summit with Arab leaders as "just a show" and insisting that missile tests will continue.

But China , Canada , and the European Union (EU) aren't going to sit around and wait for him to make his decision. The White House initially planned to make a decision before the summit, press secretary Sean Spicer said in March.

"The U.S. leaders should know that whenever we need a missile test because of a technical aspect, we will test", he said.

Speaking in Israel earlier this week, Trump claimed that the Obama administration's pact with Iran freezing the country's missile program in exchange for an easing of economic sanctions saved the country from financial destruction. That would "make it even more complicated for Trump to try to renegotiate the nuclear deal", Nuseibeh said. "He considered that the Arab kingdom has shown numerous scenarios and must take into account that in the fight against terrorism, 'pouring the nation's funds to the superpowers never solves the problem", referring to the agreement for 110 billion dollars to buy American weapons. He said America is prepared to stand with them but the region can not wait for American power to crush the enemy.

Some Iranians visiting Armenia also went to cast their ballots at their country's embassy in Yerevan on Friday.

"When they attacked Afghanistan, they made a mistake".

On Monday, Trump touched down in Israel for the second part of his foreign trip, the first one since taking office.

The committee's bill imposes mandatory sanctions on people involved in Iran's ballistic missile program and anyone who does business with them.

"Of all places, the United States president uses this bastion of democracy and moderation to attack Iran shortly after its democratic election", Zarif wrote on Twitter.
