Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Thursday called for improving relations with Saudi Arabia, Iran's Tasnim News Agency reported.

Both sides are “willing to remove trivial tensions from the path (of bilateral ties) in order to fulfill bilateral and the Islamic world’s interests,” Tasnim quoted Rouhani as saying to Hajj officials at a meeting in Tehran.

The Iranian president referred to Riyadh as a “friend and brother” of Tehran during his call for increased cooperation between the two countries.
