Iran's President Hassan Rouhani said on Wednesday June 12th he expects a "very positive change" in the Middle East and the world if the US stops its economic pressure against the Islamic republic through sanctions, AFP has reported.

"If there are some tensions, (their) roots stem from America's economic war against Iran. Whenever it stops we will witness a very positive change in the region and the world," Rouhani said at a joint news conference in Tehran with Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
