Tehran: Iranian President Hassan Rouhani blasted his US counterpart Donald Trump's plan to recognise Jerusalem as the Israeli capital on Wednesday, saying it would not be tolerated. 

Iran "will not tolerate a violation of Islamic sanctities," he said in a speech to officials in Tehran. "Muslims must stand united against this major plot."
