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. He said America is prepared to stand with them but the region can not wait for American power to crush the enemy. The construction of 400-kilovolt power line stretching from Iran to Armenia and further to Georgia will allow synchronizing the operation of the energy systems of these three countries and Russian Federation.

Mr Trump has dubbed the nuclear agreement signed by Mr Obama as "one of the worst deals ever signed".

In that address, Trump also took aim at Iran, accusing Tehran of contributing to instability in the region.

"People of Saudi Arabia are our friends, and we have always loved them".

"The gathering in Saudi Arabia was just a show with no practical or political value of any kind", Rouhani said at a press conference. The missile launches have been condemned by the Trump administration and Israel. The US had done well to reauthorize waivers from nuclear related sanctions before the elections in Iran.

During his Saudi Arabia visit, Tillerson said Saturday that he hopes the re-election of Rouhani would prompt changes to Tehran's approach to "terrorism and human rights". At the same time, the US 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 president also said that the era of interfering in other countries' affairs, waging wars and funding terrorism is over and fighting terrorism is the only way ahead.

Rouhani said that Iran's missiles were "for our defense and for peace, they are not offensive", adding that he would not need permission from the United States to conduct such tests. "That's the problem", continued the president, who was reelected last Friday.

In a tweet following the speech, Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif accused Trump of ignoring Iran's democratic credentials to "milk" Saudi Arabia of billions of dollars.

The French leader had called to congratulate him on his landslide victory in Friday's presidential vote.

He said Iran welcomed better relations with its regional neighbours and pledged to fulfil his campaign promises of opening Iran to the world and delivering freedoms to the Iranian people. "American officials should know that whenever we need to technically test a missile, we will do so and will not wait for their permission".

Rouhani says that Iranians are "waiting for this government to become stable intellectually" and that "hopefully, things will settle we could pass more accurate judgments".
