Iranian president calls US relations 'a curvy road'

The Iranian leader, who was recently re-elected to serve a second term, also slammed a multibillion-dollar arms deal signed between the USA and Saudi Arabia during the visit, arguing that this would not solve the problem either.

Iran's Foreign Ministry on Monday dismissed the recent anti-Iran claims by the US officials as "hostile and baseless", the ministry's website reported.

Trump called on Iran to cease its support of "terrorists and militias".

Iranian president also highlighted bilateral and trilateral cooperation along with Russian Federation in regional issues including Astana talks and deemed them a step toward peace and stability in region. American officials should know that whenever we need to technically test a missile we will do so.

His comments followed fierce criticism from the USA president during visits to Saudi Arabia and Israel.

Rouhani won another four-year term Friday in a vote that many saw as a referendum on his push for worldwide outreach that led to the nuclear deal, as well as a vote of confidence that his government will be able to help the country's sputtering economy.

White House deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Mr Tillerson chose to join his Saudi counterpart "on the spot" and so there was no purposeful exclusion of USA media.

During his visit to Saudi Arabia on Sunday, Trump called on the regional countries to isolate Iran which, he said, had "fueled the fires of sectarian conflict and terror".

He also noted that Iran, Russia and Turkey along with other countries can accelerate Astana talks to bring peace, stability and welfare to the region. "Once we have finalized our conclusions, we will meet the challenges Iran poses with clarity and conviction", said the Department of State official who spoke on the condition of anonymity. In February, just two weeks after taking office, the Trump administration sanctioned more than two dozen people and companies in retaliation for a ballistic missile test, warning it had put the Islamic Republic "on notice". "We could not protect the system and revolution if it were not for the elections, ballot boxes and the people's presence at ballot boxes", he said in the mausoleum.

Rouhani led the negotiations that secured the deal for Iran, and then oversaw the subsequent recovery of Iranian oil production and exports to almost their pre-sanction rates after harsh sanctions targeting the country's petroleum sector were lifted.

His first point was that Iran's current military efforts throughout the Middle East will continue, adding that they are on the ground in Iraq, Syria, and Lebanon. Trump's aim is clear: to ensure that no one challenges the hegemony of the USA and Israel in the region. "It is not possible to fight terrorism with precisely these kinds of shows".

Rouhani was re-elected in a landslide win Friday, after his first term saw a major nuclear arms deal with world powers in 2015. "We still do not know what the new U.S. government plans and wants", he said.

In a jibe at the billion-dollar deals signed between Trump and the Saudi government, he said: "You can't solve terrorism just by giving your people's money to a superpower".
