President Hassan Rouhani called for further friendly ties with neighboring countries and all nations.

Rouhani made the statement during a meeting with the ambassadors and heads of political missions in Tehran on the occasion of the 37th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution on Wednesday, Press TV reported.

“Following the nuclear deal and the removal of sanctions, our goal is to have friendly ties with countries in the region and all over the globe. Iran is ready to cooperate with friendly countries in the fields of economics, science and technology to establish a common market,” he said.

Noting that Iran’s location in the region can make it the cheapest route connecting the West to the East and provide access to open seas, Rouhani said, “Ties with Iran would be beneficial to the world economy and global trade.”

Iran and major powers started to implement the nuclear accord on January 16. When the deal went into effect, all nuclear-related sanctions imposed on Iran by the European Union, the UN Security Council and the US were lifted.
