The meeting took place on the sideline of the United Nations General Assembly in New York.
President Rouhani called for the further expansion of Tehran-Madrid ties on all fronts.
He said that Iran has always acted in line with international regulations over its nuclear energy program and is ready to dispel fears in that regard based on mutual respect.
“Those who have slapped sanctions [against Iran] have come to the conclusion that the sanctions are counterproductive,” said the president.
Spanish prime minister said President Rouhani’s election has created new hopes in the international community.
Spanish Prime Minister Mariano says it is the Iranian people that bear the brunt of US-led sanctions against the Islamic Republic.
He said that the sanctions will eventually hurt the people and they are the ones who will have to pay the price for the US-engineered bans.
Therefore, he added, the European Union (EU) countries would like the current situation to change and the sanctions reviewed.
Spanish Prime Minister expressed hope that Iran and the EU would immediately resolve any differences between them.
He also discussed the Syria crisis as well as the Palestinian issue with the Iranian president.
The Spanish premier also congratulated Rouhani on his election as the Iranian president and described Iran as a great country with a glorious history.
