Rouhani says regional stability impossible without Iran

Herman Weaver | 24 May, 2017, 07:03

"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", Trump said in Riyadh on Sunday.

Reformist candidates swept municipal elections in Iran's capital, taking all 21 seats in Tehran as moderate President Hassan Rouhani won a second term, state media reported Monday.

Both countries have made bellicose statements, with Iran's defense minister, Hossein Dehghan, telling the Arabic-speaking Al-Manar channel: "We warn them against doing anything ignorant, but if they do something ignorant, we will leave nowhere untouched apart from Mecca and Medina".

Rouhani also criticized Saudi Arabia, Tehran's main regional rival, just hours after Trump departed the country bound for Israel, where he arrived Monday.

Trump has threatened to try to renegotiate the deal, which saw Iran accept curbs on its contested nuclear program in exchange for the lifting of some global economic sanctions.

Analysts fear tensions are growing out of control.

Saturday, Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir, at a news conference with his U.S. counterpart Rex Tillerson in Riyadh, said Iran's presidential election was an internal matter.

Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, who spearheaded the nuclear negotiations, reacted sarcastically, comparing this weekend's elections in Iran to the lack of democracy in Saudi Arabia.

Rouhani took his election victory as a mandate to push Iran even further along the diplomatic route, saying, "Iran's nation chose the path of interaction with the world, away from violence and extremism". It was Iran, Syria, Hezbollah and Russian Federation.

In comments on Monday, Bahram Qassemi strongly criticized the new USA administration for its "deceitful stances, interfering remarks, and destructive and provocative measures", one day after Trump accused Iran of stoking the fires of sectarian conflict and terror during a trip to Riyadh. "For decades, Iran has fueled the fires of sectarian conflict and terror". That's when Saudi Arabia executed a prominent Shiite cleric and protesters in Iran attacked two of the kingdom's diplomatic posts.

"The Riyadh regime has. failed to achieve its objectives despite going to great expense", it wrote in an editorial.
