Rouhani urged EU to avoid following in US footsteps

ian President Hassan Rouhani, who is being sworn-in for a second term, has accused the United States of trying to undermine Tehran’s nuclear deal with world powers, and urged European countries not to side with Washington.

Rouhani, who was decisively re-elected in May after promising to open Iran to the world and create more jobs, took the oath of office before parliament in Tehran in the presence of dignitaries including senior European figures.

“The US’s repeated violations of its commitments and the new sanctions it imposed on Iran have left a negative impact on Iran’s public opinion, and can hamper implementation of the nuclear deal,” Rouhani was quoted as saying by Tasnim news agency ahead of the ceremony.
