Iran does not want “new tensions” in the Middle East, President Hassan Rouhani said Thursday in a telephone call with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
“Iran has always sought to reduce tensions in the region, trying to strengthen security and stability,” Rouhani said, according to a statement on the website of Iran's presidency.
Rouhani did not mention Israel’s strikes on Thursday against what the Jewish state said were Iranian targets in Syria, or those against the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.
