Iranian president criticises US after Donald Trump calls for country's isolation

Maryam Rajavi, president of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), has praised the Arab Summit's agreements that Iran is a destabilising influence on the Middle East and welcomed efforts to stop Iran's support for terrorism and their repression of their own people.

In his congratulatory message to Rouhani, Sarkisian, as quoted by his press office, expressed confidence that during the Iranian president's tenure "the friendly neighborly Iran will continue to develop upward, bringing its considerable and important contribution to the establishment of regional peace and stability".

His comments followed fierce criticism from the U.S. president during visits to Saudi Arabia and Israel.

The president said in his speech that Iran was responsible for "much instability in the region".

Incumbent President Hassan Rouhani won a landslide victory in the elections by garnering over 23.4 million of votes (57%) from more than 41 million ballots cast on May 19.

"From Lebanon to Iraq to Yemen, Iran funds, arms and trains terrorists, militias and other extremist groups that spread destruction and chaos across the region", the U.S. president said. "Who can say the region will experience total stability without Iran?" he said at a news conference.

Senator Bob Corker, the Republican chairman of the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said on Thursday the panel could take up a bill to impose new sanctions on Russian Federation as soon as this summer.

Asserting that unity and consensus is the solution against the terrorism, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has said that terrorism is now on the path to eradication, although there is a lot to be done in this respect.

Iran is involved in numerous conflicts across the Middle East, in particular in Yemen, Syria and Iraq.

While Rouhani will have to play off competing factions on Iran's domestic front to implement his agenda, he and the conservatives could join forces to apply leverage to restrain Trump and force him to come to terms with Tehran.

Muslims may also recite a special prayter during the morning of Eid Day, followed by a community celebration with food and games. The month is sacred to Muslims because tradition says it marks the period when the Koran was revealed to the Prophet Mohammed.

United States arms deals for Iran's Sunni foes help bolster the case of Rouhani's hardline opponents, who say any detente with the West is unsafe folly.

Rouhani's stance was echoed by other Iranian leaders throughout the day. The vote served as a referendum on Iran's 2015 nuclear deal with world powers, as well as a vote of confidence that his government will be able to help the country's sputtering economy.

But in a reminder of the worldwide pressure that Iran faces, German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel said yesterday Teheran must stop supporting armed groups in Syria and Iraq that destabilise the Middle East if it wants good relations with the West.

"Once again, by his repetitive and baseless claims about Iran, the American president. tried to encourage the countries of the [Middle East] region to purchase more arms by spreading Iranophobia", Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi said a day after Trump sealed a massive arms deal with Iran's arch-rival, Saudi Arabia, worth $110 billion.
