European Union High Representative for Foreign Affairs Federica Mogherini participated in the swearing-in ceremony of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.
This will be 68-year-old Rouhanis second term as president. [ ]
In his speech to Irans parliament, Rouhani said his country will not be the first to violate the nuclear deal, but will also not stand by the deal if other countries violate it. [ ]

As I recall, they violated the agreement within the first week by launching banned missiles. Of course, Obama did nothing.
Yes, and the “free press” (liberal media) collectively ignored it.
Iran engages in ballistic missile testing and gets away with it. On top of that, the assumption that Iran is only a threat because of their nuclear missiles is a product of the liberal media. Iran is the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism. They bankroll Hezbollah, which smuggles poison into American streets through Latin America and tried to blow up the Panama Canal. On top of that, Iran persecutes Christians and just recently detained our sailors, only to be released after an Obama bribe, which Obama denied was a bribe, then admitted was a bribe, and then admitted was the first part of a bribe of an even higher amount (where was the media outrage then?). Long story short, neither the EU nor Iran are our friends. Eastern Europe and countries like Japan, South Korea, Egypt, Jordan, and the UAE have done way more to keep Americans safe than Germany and France, who buddy up with China and Iran as they splurge on welfare states because we cover their defense bills.
By poison I’m referring to drugs, btw:

I’m having a senior moment, didn’t John F’ Kerry’s daughter marry Rouhani’s son?
I was recently watching a documentary about Khomeini’s fatwa against Salman Rushdie, from BBC.
A “news” clip was on there featuring the anchorman calling Seyyid Ali Husseini Khamenei, who is ayatollah today, “the moderate president”.
