Analysts however said hard times lie ahead for the re-elected reformist, who first and foremost will need to save the 2015 nuclear deal made with six world powers from being scuppered by US President Donald Trump and hardliners in Tehran.
Speaking to reporters at the State Department on Tuesday, Tillerson lamented the sour state of relations with Russian Federation more than half a year into Trump's term.
The Iran nuclear deal is created to monitor and curtail Iran's nuclear program in exchange for economic sanctions relief.
The draft sanctions law, which also targets Russian Federation and North Korea, has passed the US Congress and needs President Donald Trump's signature to become law.
Despite his election triumph, Mr. Rohani has been criticized inside the country, the conservatives blaming him for having made too many concessions to the great powers and have not listened to their warnings against the United States, sworn enemy of Iran.
"A host of retaliatory measures in the legislative, technical, nuclear, economic, political, defense, and military areas, have been devised by the body monitoring the JCPOA, which will be pursued in a coordinated way and in parallel with each other", Iran's Supreme National Security Council Secretary Ali Shamkhani said. He did not elaborate, but said the measures included steps to "improve" Iran's armed forces.
US President Donald Trump on Wednesday signed into law a congressional sanctions bill that levies new sanctions against Iran, Russia and North Korea.
Another expert in the Middle Eastern regional security affairs, with a particular focus on Iran, Alex Vatanka noted that, although Iran claims it does not violate the 2015 agreement, its missile tests surely do not result in building confidence between Iran and the Trump administration.
Trump told the Wall Street Journal in July that he believed Iran would be judged "noncompliant" with the Iran deal, at the next deadline in October.
The U.S. sanctions impose penalties on people involved in Iran's ballistic missile program, enforce an arms embargo and apply terrorism sanctions to Iran's powerful Revolutionary Guard.
USA law requires the president to certify that Iran is in compliance with the agreement every 90 days, with the next deadline in October.
"As long as we allow the Iranian regime to violate this council's prohibitions with impunity, it will be a source of weapons to terrorist groups that will only grow in volume and destructive capability", Haley warned.
Wednesday's letter says Iran's launch is "inconsistent" with that section of the resolution.
Her letter, written on behalf of the United States, France, Germany, and Britain, called on the council to "discuss appropriate responses" against Tehran for its "provocative action".
