Prime Minister Narendra Modi met Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and the two leaders discussed bilateral cooperation and exchanged views on the situation in the region.

‘Giving an impetus to developmental cooperation with Iran. PM @narendramodi held talks with President @HassanRouhani in New York,’ the Prime Minister’s Office tweeted after his meeting with the Iranian president on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly session in New York.

Their meeting was keenly awaited as it comes amid escalating face-off between Iran and the United States on Tehran’s nuclear programme.

Iran is also accused by the US and its allies of attacking two key oil facilities in Saudi Arabia, triggering a new round of tensions in the region.

The two leaders ‘discussed bilateral cooperation and exchanged views on the situation in the region’, External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said.

The two leaders could not hold a planned meeting on the sidelines of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) summit in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, in June due to scheduling issues.
