Rouhani to Expand Regional Ties

President-elect Hassan Rouhani said Iran will expand relations with its neighbors and strengthen regional ties during his presidency. Rouhani made the comments in response to the congratulatory message of Sultan Qaboos of Oman.

“Expanding ties with the neighboring countries and strengthening regional cooperation in order to maintain peace and provide the interests of the regional nations is one of the foreign policy priorities of Iran’s 11th (incoming) administration,” Rouhani told Qaboos.

Also, in a message to Jordan’s King Abdullah, Rouhani said that his government will attempt to expand its ties with all Muslim countries.
