Few days are left before the inauguration ceremony and the start of the tenure of Iran's new president Hassan Rouhani. For the first time since the Islamic revolution, the inauguration ceremony will be attended by senior representatives of different countries, including the presidents of several states.
According to local media reports, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Iran has sent out invitations to most heads of states for the inauguration ceremony, which will be held on August 4. If previously, the inauguration ceremony was attended only by heads of missions accredited in Tehran, high-ranking officials of more than 40 states, presidents of ten countries and heads of parliaments of the five states have accepted the invitation and agreed to participation in the ceremony this year.
The election of Hassan Rouhani this year pleased the population of many cities in Iran, and the people went out into the streets and demonstrated their joy to the whole world. Along with this, the heads of several countries in the region and the world welcomed Rouhani's victory.
The interest of global leaders in participating in Rouhani's inauguration is due to the fact that they support his efforts to reduce tension in Iran's foreign policy and prevent possible conflicts, which may arise between Iran and the West over its nuclear program.
Most of the leaders of the countries in the region and the world are concerned by a possible failure to peacefully resolve the problem associated with Iran's nuclear program and the possible military conflict with Western countries that this may bring. Despite that Iran's neighbors consider it an enemy, new military clashes in the region do not comply with their national interests. So Rouhani's promises to reduce tensions over Iran's nuclear program have raised hopes for a way out of a conflict.
As a result of Ahmadinejad's recent foreign policy, the anti-Iranian coalition in the UN Security Council has become stronger. Moreover, as a result of U.S. and Western countries' sanctions against Iran, living standards and the economic situation in the has country deteriorated.
Despite that Rouhani has not yet assumed power, the voiced promises allowed the leaders who will participate in the ceremony to be pleased with the Iranian people's choice. By their participation in the inauguration, they extend a hand of friendship and cooperation to Iran. Thus, the Iranian government can take advantage of the situation in foreign policy to create the ground for the future prosperity of the country as a result of a shake of extended hands.
