Iran’s new President Hassan Rouhani Sunday pledged to deepen ties with India,hours after he took the oath before a galaxy of world leaders,including Vice-President Hamid Ansari.

Ansari,who was earlier India’s ambassador to Iran,called on Rouhani during which the two leaders discussed ways to further strengthen bilateral ties.

Reflecting warm bilateral relations,Ansari flew into the Iranian capital by a special plane to represent India at the inauguration of the 64-year-old moderate cleric as Iran’s seventh President. He was welcomed by deputy foreign minister Abbas Garchy. Ansari also met Ali Larijani,Speaker of the Majlis.
