Eleven other international organizations, among them the United Nations, the European Union, the Central American Integration System and the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries, ratified their participation in the ceremony.

Mousavi revealed that some 400 journalists, and local and foreign correspondents requested to cover the swearing-in ceremony, but only 170 accepted due to the risk of expansion of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Ebrahim Raisi won the June 18 presidential elections with more than 18 million or 62 percent of valid votes.
