Iran's Rouhani Criticizes Trump, Recent Saudi Summit

And these institutions include not only the majority conservative parliament and unelected positions of authority like the supreme leadership and the guardian council, but also the Iranian state media and the paramilitary Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, which wields tremendous power over the security state while also controlling a majority of the country's gross domestic product.

Iran had warned about the return of terrorists to Europe when the Syria war was in the making, the MP said.

The rest of the world should welcome Rouhani's victory as an opportunity further to improve relations with a country that is central to progress towards a more peaceful Middle East.

CBO: Republicans' AHCA Would Leave 23 Million More Uninsured
Congressional Republicans and President Donald Trump campaigned on replacing President Barack Obama's signature health-care law. The release of the CBO numbers came as Senate Republicans continued to work behind closed doors on their own health care plan.

Rouhani added that Hezbollah is a respected and trusted group among Lebanese people and accusing Hezbollah of being terrorists will not help solve the terrorism problem.

"The Saudis played Trump for a fool - knowing that they were part of a tag-team with the Israelis, that their allies in the administration had prepared the ground and that Trump's mind is a blank canvas on which they could paint their picture of reality", he concluded.

PRESIDENT HASSAN ROUHANI, Iran (through interpreter): He has gone to a country where I think the word election has no meaning for them.

S. Korea fires shots at N. Korea after object crosses border
Earlier, North Korea on May 14 test-fired a ballistic missile from a region near its west coast amid tense relation with US. South Korea has fired warning shots at an unidentified object flying south from North Korea , its military said.

In addition to managing his home front, the other challenge for Mr. Rouhani will be keep the JCPOA going in the face of the U.S. Congress's and now President Donald Trump's declared hostility.

Global economists as well as USA officials did not foresee an imminent economic collapse, though Trump theoretically could be citing a classified or otherwise non-public assessment.

That agreement placed very strict limits on Iran's nuclear programme, in exchange for relief from crippling economic sanctions imposed by the USA, the European Union and the United Nations Security Council. Most still see Trump as an anti-Muslim leader, a perception which may have been the chief driving factor that brought him to his position.

Students who choose not to must use single-access facilities, essentially segregating trans students either way. It passed the House on Sunday but still needs approval from the state Senate , which is expected to support it.

At the Tehran press conference, Rouhani also defended Iran's ballistic missile program, something heavily criticized by Trump's new administration. A major theme of its recent presidential campaign was the lack of economic benefits that ordinary Iranians are seeing from the agreement. "Know that while there is a technical need to conduct missile tests, we will do so and we will ask the permission of no one". "Once we have finalized our conclusions, we will meet the challenges Iran poses with clarity and conviction", said the Department of State official who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
