Tehran, Sept 25, IRNA -- German Chancellor Angela Merkel welcomed President Hassan Rouhani's initiative for 'Coalition for Hope and Hormuz Peace', saying that she will examine the idea with interest.

In a meeting with President Rouhani at his residence in New York on the sidelines of the 74th Session of the UN General Assembly on Tuesday, she stressed her resolve to promote bilateral relations in all fields.
