The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Islamic Republic of Iran has given details on the invitations for foreign figures to the Rouhani inauguration.
Seyyed Abbas Araqchi, Spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in an interview with YJC that foreign officials are being invited to the ceremony for Rouhani's swear-in.
"More than 40 countries will attend the inauguration of Dr. Rouhani. The invitations sent have to do with the heads of states,” Araqchi pointed out.
He added "Some countries said that they will attend the inauguration at the special envoy level, but regrettably we had to say that there are procedural limitations.”
"We focused on regional and neighbor countries, where there was a good favor as well. More than 40 countries will attend in rankings of minister and above. As for the countries with lower ranks we have apologized for space and facility issues,” Araqchi continued.
