Trump signs new Iran sanctions into law over his own objections

It is noted that no sitting president in Iran has failed to win a second term since 1981.

Trump, who during his election campaign a year ago called 2015's nuclear agreement "the worst deal ever", signed new sanctions into law on Wednesday, along with measures against Russian Federation and North Korea. Javdanfar said the new US sanctions on Iran signed by Trump into law on Wednesday, along with measures against Russian Federation and North Korea would likely deter foreign investors and so undermine Rouhani's efforts to boost the economy. In July, 265 members of the European Parliament signed a joint declaration, calling on the EU and European governments to predicate their ties with Iran on improvements in the situation of human rights.

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.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei gave his endorsement letter to the re-elected President Hassan Rouhani, during the ceremony for his confirmation as the Iranian chief executive, in Tehran on Aug 3, Trend's correspondent reported from the event.

"If the sanctions are to be implemented, there will be problematic times for Iran and for the nuclear deal in general", Hassan Ahmadian, a professor at the University of Tehran, said.

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

The U.S. legislation imposes mandatory penalties on people involved in Iran's ballistic missile program and anyone who does business with them. Trump also referred to a Supreme Court case, Zivotofsky v. Kerry, in which the high court ruled that Congress can not require the State Department to issue passports stating that Jerusalem is in Israel, which is contrary to current US policy.

"We believe that the nuclear deal has been violated and we will react appropriately", Araghchi said on state television, following news that US President Donald Trump had signed the new sanctions into law.

Rouhani will be sworn in on Saturday and then have two weeks to present his cabinet to parliament for a vote of confidence.

In May, Rouhani won re-election in a landslide after securing 57 percent of the votes and defeating his main contender Ebrahim Raeisi, the current custodian of the Holy Shrine of Imam Reza (PBUH).
