Iran's Rouhani presents new ministers to parliament

However, Rouhani kept his foreign minister, who oversaw the nuclear deal with Western countries that resulted in sanctions being lifted. Rouhani has intensified efforts to protect the deal against Washington's return to an aggressive Iran policy. In recent weeks, the Reformists have demanded that Rouhani not surrender to pressure from conservatives and hard-liners who once dominated parliament and instead pick suitable ministers who believe in his campaign promises, which were based on political and social reform.

Trump signed into law new sanctions against Iran last week in response to a missile development programme and human rights abuses.

Tehran will reciprocally respond to Washington's violations of the worldwide deal, Salehi warned in an interview with the Lebanese TV news channel Al Mayadeen.

Only the position of science minister remains unselected - a position that saw Rouhani get into a legislative dogfight in parliament in 2014. His hardline predecessor, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, had one female minister in his cabinet, that was opposed by some clerics.

Rahmani Fazli is also under attack by Reformists and moderates for not pursuing policy in line with their objectives and for failing to change numerous governors who were appointed by former hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. They have asked for a bigger share in the cabinet.

The minister also said that the big number of foreign delegations attending Rouhani's inauguration ceremony on Saturday means that the policy of isolating Iran has failed and the Iranophobia plot has been foiled.
