Iranian president calls US relations 'a curvy road'

Iran's re-elected President Hassan Rouhani said Monday that United States should drop its "hostile" policies towards the Islamic republic.

At the start of the Trump Administration in January and February, US relations with Iran worsened after the Islamic Republic carried out ballistic missiles tests, and new US sanctions against Iran were announced.

The president made the remarks on Monday in his first press conference after his reelection.

Rouhani says that Iranians are "waiting for this government to be civil" and that "hopefully, things will settle we could pass more accurate judgments".

It was a "theatrical gathering with no practical or political value", he said of Trump's stop in Saudi Arabia over the weekend, according to CNN.

The remarks came three days after he won Iran's presidential election, securing another four-year term.

Gen. Massoud Jazayeri, refuted the comments by the U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson for urging a policy shift in Tehran's conduct during President Hassan Rouhani's second term.
