The 12th Iranian President Hassan Rouhani was sworn in for a second term in an inauguration ceremony in Tehran, Saturday, amidst fresh sanctions imposed on the country by the US.
The ceremony took place in the presence of the country's high-ranking officials, several heads of states and senior politicians from around the world including EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini.
During the... Еще ceremony, Rouhani stressed that whilst Iran would never initiate the violation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), commonly known as the Iran Nuclear Deal, it would not «remain silent» if the US were to repeatedly break the accords.
Rouhani warned that «those who want to tear apart the JCPOA, should know that with this move, they would also be tearing apart their political life.»
Last month the US announced new economic sanctions on the country due to alleged support for terror groups.
