Rouhani stressed the need for expansion of Iran-Britain cooperation in economic, cultural, scientific and political fields, adding that generating of dynamism in bilateral ties could benefit not only both nations, but also the regional and world nations.

'The past inaction in these fields needs to be mended relying on double-efforts,' he said.

'Beyond doubt the status quo in Syria, Iraq and Yemen is unacceptable and we should all try to resolve the terrorism and instability problems in this important region,' he said.
