Rouhani made the remarks at the 3rd Iran Automotive Industry International Conference which opened in Tehran on Monday.
He expressed hope the conference would provide opportunities for the partnership of domestic and foreign companies and the presence of Iran’s car industry in the global automotive scene.
Stating that cooperation should be more considered than before, Rouhani said the country is in a situation that after several years of severe and illegal sanctions against people and industry, the development path has faced disorders.
It was necessary, he noted, to logically tell the world that Iranian people seek peace, security and cooperation with the world.
“In 2014, Iranian nation told they want moderation, not extremism. People told they want interaction with the world, not confrontation; they said they want to resolve problems at the negotiating table,” Rouhani underlined.
