Rohani Sworn In For Second Term

EU says Iran deal sound, all parties stick to terms

He said that in his second term in office, Iran will "insist on constructive engagement with the world more than before".

Iran's supreme leader on Thursday slammed the new US sanctions on Tehran signed by President Donald Trump the previous day, and vowed his country would continue its missile program despite worldwide pressure.

Iranian official has declared the new United States sanctions a violation of the 2015 nuclear deal. French company Total defied U.S. pressure in July by signing a multibillion-dollar gas deal with Iran.

On foreign policies, Leader underlined that "international interaction must not make us neglect enemy's plots as some of foreign states just seek destruction of Iran", he said.

Recent reports also indicate a woman being executed on July 26 in the northwestern Iranian city of Urmia, bringing the number of women executed during the tenure of the so-called "moderate" President Hassan Rouhani to 80.

Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe has reportedly arrived in the capital Tehran to attend the swearing-in ceremony of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.

While Russia has reacted to the sanctions by ejecting United States embassy staff, Iran has no diplomatic relations or direct trade links with the U.S. so its retaliation options are limited.

Iraq not sure of fate of 39 Indians
However, a media report from Badush on Friday said the jail is now an abandoned structure and has been unoccupied for weeks. After his return, Ms Swaraj had reportedly told the families of the abducted Indians that they could be in Badush jail .

"So far we consider that all parties have been implementing their commitments under the deal", Catherine Ray, a spokeswoman for European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini, told a press briefing in Brussels. "We are definitely not going to act in a way that get us entangled in the politics of the American government and Trump". "The nuclear deal is a sign of Iran's goodwill on the global stage". "Now in Iran, there is a growing debate if these sanctions violate [the nuclear deal] or not".

Tehran's pursuit of ballistic missiles, controversial nuclear program, support for proxies across the Middle East and fueling sectarian strife has gained widespread attention across the global community.

The law also imposed new sanctions on Russian Federation and North Korea.

Papayianni said Mogherini should ask to meet with activists including Narges Mohammadi, the former head of the Centre for Human Rights Defenders in Iran.

At the start of the Trump Administration in January and February, US relations with Iran worsened after the Islamic Republic carried out ballistic missiles tests, and new US sanctions against Iran were announced.

"What will be absolutely critical is how the Europeans position themselves", she said, pointing to the burgeoning trade ties with Europe and their continued backing of the nuclear deal.
