Riding a large turnout from Iran's urban middle classes, President Hassan Rouhani won re-election in a landslide Saturday, giving him a mandate to continue his quest to expand personal freedoms and open Iran's ailing economy to global investors.
Earlier, Iran's Interior Minister Abdolreza Rahmani-Fazli said the incumbent President of Iran has won Friday's presidential election. They will fight tooth and tail at every turn over the next four years to stop or frustrate President Rouhani's efforts to push through his reforms.
Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said Iran's presidential election was an internal matter and called on Tehran to adhere to United Nations resolutions on its ballistic missiles and to stop supporting "terrorism".

The election was a victory for moderate and reformist Iranians who have sought an end to their country's worldwide isolation and a relaxation of social restrictions imposed by the conservative mullahs. Trump chose to do so, but also imposed narrow sanctions against two Iranian defense officials and an Iranian company that the US government said were linked to Iran's ballistic missile program.
He won a resounding victory on Saturday against his opponent Ebrahim Raisi.
"The Iranian nation has chosen the path of interaction with the world, a path which is distant from extremism and violence", Mr Rouhani said in his first speech after the victory.
