Rouhani hopes Johnson will remove obstacles in UK-Iran relations.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani expressed hope that UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson's familiarity with the relations between Tehran and London would help remove obstacles in the development of bilateral ties, APA reports citing Sputniknews.
"I hope that Your Excellency's familiarity with relations between Iran and the United Kingdom, and your only one visit to Tehran greatly contribute to removing the existing obstacles on the path of development of relations between the two countries," Rouhani's congratulatory letter to Johnson read.
Johnson, former UK foreign secretary, took over as prime minister on 24 July after winning the Conservative leadership vote.
Earlier on Sunday, Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesperson and senior nuclear negotiator Abbas Araqchi spoke during the JCPOA meeting in Vienna, condemning the seizure of his country's Grace 1 oil tanker as a violation of the Iran nuclear deal.
