Stockbroker sees hike for equity market in Rouhani's 2nd term

Stockbroker sees hike for equity market in Rouhani's 2nd term

Referring to Iran as "the number one terrorist state", the US president said the Middle Eastern country supplies money and weapons to terrorist groups.

On Wednesday, US President Donald Trump reluctantly signed the "Countering America's Adversaries through Sanctions Act", the law with which the US Congress slapped new sanctions on Russia, North Korea, and Iran, while limiting the Chief Executive's power to ease them.

Ayatollah Khamenei further said Iranian officials have succeeded to cooperate with the world despite enemy attempts to isolate the nation.

Ray based her expectation on a July 21 meeting in Vienna of the Mogherini-chaired commission that brings together Iran and the other parties to discuss the deal's implementation.

The United States is undermining the Iran nuclear deal by imposing sanctions on the country, a ranking Iranian official said Thursday on state TV.

The mounting crisis creates a hard situation for Rouhani, a 68-year-old moderate who won a second four-year term largely thanks to his efforts to fix relations with the West.

"We will never accept isolation", Rouhani told a packed audience of Iranian political and military officials in Tehran on Thursday.

The agreement was championed by former US President Barack Obama and his Administration as one of its landmark foreign policy achievements.

Amnesty International has called on the European Union to take a tougher stance after accusing Iran of a "vicious crackdown" that it says has dashed hopes of rights reform.

Ray said the joint commission allowed for the Iranian view on new U.S. sanctions to be widely discussed.

"We will certainly not fall into the trap of U.S. policy and Trump, and our reaction will be very carefully considered", he added.

Iran has yet to issue a formal response to the sanctions imposed by the U.S.

Report informs citing the Iranian Embassy to Azerbaijan that he will attend inauguration ceremony of the re-elected Iranian president Hassan Rouhani.

During his election campaign for a second term in office, Hassan Rouhani, 68, pledged to deliver on his campaign promises of creating a freer society and improving the economic situation in the country.

In Iran's presidential election on May 19, Rouhani garnered 23.5 million votes out of a total of 41 million.

Following the publication of a 94-page report by Amnesty International on 2nd August 2017, "Caught in a web of repression: Iran's human rights defenders under attack" (https://www.amnesty.org.uk/files/2017-08/Iran%20HRD%20report.pdf?H8bShop765Jqt8yeFVE91EJ37avGEnFM), the Friends of a Free Iran in the European Parliament once again call on the EU and European governments to predicate their relationships with Iran on halting executions and improvement in human rights and women rights.

His conservative rival Ebrahim Raisi came second with 38.5 per cent.
