Senate panel OKs new sanctions on Iran; nuclear deal remains

"Unfortunately, Americans have always made mistakes in our region", he continued.

Trump landed in Saudi Arabia on Saturday, the first stop of his first foreign tour since becoming president.

Some held posters of former President Mohammad Khatami, who has been banned from appearing in the media by Iranian authorities, but who has spoken out in favour of Rouhani during the election.

In a jibe at the multibillion-dollar arms deals signed between Mr Trump and the Saudi government at the weekend, he said: "You can't solve terrorism just by giving your people's money to a superpower". Rouhani said. "Who can say the region will experience total stability without Iran?" "They should be picked by the people".

Mr Rouhani added that it was Iran's allies in Lebanon, Syria and Iraq that had been leading the fight against the Islamic State group and other jihadists.

On May 21, Trump spoke at a summit in Saudi Arabia where he urged Arab and Muslim to "work together to isolate Iran" unless it is "willing to be a partner for peace".

"Independent of the nuclear portfolio, and as President Rouhani starts his second presidential term, our broader policy towards Iran must be one that holds Tehran accountable for their destabilizing efforts in the region, illegal and unsafe missile technology development, and nefarious activities as the world's leading sponsor of terrorism", Menendez said.

By an 18-3 vote, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee paved the way for full Senate consideration, despite objections from former Secretary of State John Kerry and others who served in Democratic President Barack Obama's administration that it might threaten the 2015 worldwide nuclear deal with Iran.

Sanctions also would be applied to those who support Iran's terror operations, including the IRGC, which is not now designated as a terror organization by the United States. Trump, meanwhile, has threatened to tear up the deal.

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said France is convinced that Iran under Rouhani will have "an important role in the pacification" of the region.

At the same time, the United States of America imposed new sanctions on Iran's ballistic missile program and said it was continuing to review Iran's adherence to the 2015 nuclear accord. The Trump administration in February sanctioned more than two dozen people and companies in retaliation for a ballistic missile test, warning it had put the Islamic Republic "on notice". "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".

"We are waiting for this government to settle".

Qassemi added Iran is a country which promotes the values of peace and "the creation of a world opposed to violence and extremism".
