Iran and major world powers signed a nuclear deal in 2015 known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). Under the agreement, Iran accepted to curb its nuclear activities in exchange for economic sanctions relief.

As to Iran's relations with Saudi Arabia, the Iranian president said that if Riyadh stops bowing to the Zionist regime of Israel, and relies on its nation and other nations in the region, there will be no problem between Iran and the Arab country.

'Saudi Arabia should stop bombing Yemen and begging the Zionists for relations,' President Rouhani said.

'Stopping the false friendship with Zionism' and 'Stopping antihumanitarian bombing on Yemen' are the the two 'stops' that Iran wants to see on the Saudi's part, the president said.
