United States urges Rouhani to end ballistic missile tests

The Republican congress and the Trump Presidency in the United States will not be almost as willing to cut deals with the Iran - already negotiating large arms sales to Iran's main political opponent Saudi Arabia.

Visiting Saudi Arabia on Sunday, the controversial American leader singled out Iran as a key source of funding and support for militant groups in the Middle East, sending an unhelpful and unwanted message to Tehran the day after Rouhani won a second presidential term. He met with Israeli President Reuven Rivlin in Jerusalem and said in a statement after the meeting that Israel and Muslim nations have a growing realization that they share a "common cause" of combating "the threat posed by Iran". Many Iranians were disappointed when the lifting of economic sanctions as part of the 2015 nuclear deal did not trickle down to improve their lives-something Rouhani had promised.

In that address, Trump also took aim at Iran, accusing Tehran of contributing to instability in the region. "But the foundation of power is national strength and this only happens through elections", Rouhani said.

He said Iran was still forming its judgement of the Trump administration.

The conservative candidate Raisi has claimed, during the campaign, that he is the voice of the poor; but it seems poorer Iranians have trusted Rouhani, instead, as they believe he is the only one capable of terminating the sanctions.

"Our goal is a coalition of nations who share the aim of stamping out extremism and providing our children a hopeful future that does honor to God", Trump said.

Burnley returned to the top flight with many fans and pundits expecting them to go straight back down as they did two years ago. Given that neither Burnley nor West Ham have nothing much to play for, Sunday's game could prove to be a low-key affairs.

Rouhani won this week's Iranian presidential election with a resounding majority, a sign that most Iranians wish to keep on the president's course of reform and modernization. "The problem is that the Americans do not know our region and those who advise US officials are misleading them".

Rouhani says that Iranians are "waiting for this government to become stable intellectually" and that "hopefully, things will settle down.so we could pass more accurate judgments".

"Who fought against the terrorists?"

"Ayatollah Hashemi Rafsanjani was the first one who encouraged me previous year to run for the 12th round of the presidential election".

The conservatives in Iran fielded Ebrahim Raisi, a nationalist who had worked in the Iranian judiciary during an infamous massacre of opposition politicians.

Rouhani said that Iran's missiles were "for our defense and for peace, they are not offensive", adding that he would not need permission from the USA to conduct such tests.
