Rebuffing Trump, Iran president says missile tests to continue 'if necessary'

Mr Trump said shared concern about Iran was driving Israel and many Arab states closer and demanded that Tehran immediately cease military and financial backing of "terrorists and militias".

The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) President-elect Maryam Rajavi said, "He neither wants, nor is able to alter the regime's foundations and behavior". President Hassan Rouhani won his second term with 57 percent of the vote while his opponent fellow-cleric, head of the chief shrine of Mashhad, Ebrahim Raisi got only 38 percent.

Iran is no worse than many of America's allies in the region (and better than some) in its treatment of its own citizens. Political arguments stalled approval of the contract terms the government would offer, and US financial sanctions - and the potential threat of additional curbs - continue to dissuade many would-be global investors.

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

Being a far-sighted politician, who is open to new formats of cooperation that will benefit the country, Rouhani achieved success at the regional level as well.

He expressed the hope that diplomatic efforts would bear results and would pave the way for the Syrian people to decide on the future of their country. It was Iran, Syria, Hezbollah and Russian Federation. Who continues to fund the terrorists? "Those who fund terrorists can not claim they are fighting against them", he said. The country may, for example, buy less weapons and enhance trade with other players. Many however, interpret both of the aforementioned initiatives, at least in part, as being both out of a shared concern between Israel, the Gulf States and the U.S. of a rising Iran.

"Maybe it will help if Saudi leaders let their people to decide over their country's fate by casting their vote". "When they attacked Afghanistan (and) Iraq, when they made sanctions against Iran".

Tehran is more likely to ratchet up its interventions in Arab nations as the IRGC and Quds Force will be empowered and emboldened, and Iran will continue to be the top state-sponsor of terrorism.

He said that Saudis should know that terrorism is a big threat to the world and there is no choice except for moderation. Both of them have worked with Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran's religiously appointed Supreme Leader, and both have worked years in Iran's political bureaucracy.

Rouhani also defended Iran's ballistic missile program, which has been highly opposed by the Trump administration. Our missiles are for peace and for defence. "Rouhani will do one of two things: either wait and see what Trump does, or he'll say, 'Let's move ahead.' I'd advise him to go ahead".
