President Vows to Boost Economy for 2nd Term in Office

The key political achievement of Rouhani during past four years in the office was signing a nuclear deal with six major world powers.

President Hassan Rouhani promised that in his second term, Iran will pursue a path of coexistence and interaction with the world.

Rouhani, 68, was speaking on Saturday evening in parliament in downtown Tehran, after taking the oath of office for another four years as chief executive.

The inauguration ceremony for the centrist cleric who earned a 24-million-vote mandate in the May vote was broadcast live on state television.

"Promoting constructive interaction with the world, deepening bonds with neighboring and regional countries, and developing cooperation with friendly states are not only an informed choice but also a necessity to improve international peace and security," he said.

"Overcoming dangerous threats and complicated developments in the current state of flux is not possible, except through increased contacts and interaction and establishment of dialogue with governments and nations."

Before Rouhani's speech, Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani and Judiciary Chief Sadeq Amoli Larijani delivered addresses, in which they hailed the 73% voter turnout in the May election as a testimony to the sustenance of democracy in the Islamic Republic.

His second swearing-in was a more high-profile event than his first, as over 700 Iranian guests and 500 foreign dignitaries representing some 100 countries and international organizations attended the ceremony.

Earlier on Saturday, Rouhani discussed bilateral relations with EU foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini, Iraqi President Fuad Masum, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani and Speaker of South Korea's National Assembly Chung Sye-kyun.

The key political achievement of Rouhani during past four years in the office was signing a nuclear deal with six major world powers, namely Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the United States, which put an end to a decade-long dispute over the country's sensitive nuclear program.

The deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, was signed in July 2015 and was implemented in January 2016.

Based on the deal, nuclear-related sanctions on various Iranian business and financial sectors were lifted, but it put more strict limits on its nuclear program.
