Iran does not want "new tensions" in the Middle East, President Hassan Rouhani said on Thursday in a telephone call with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

"Iran has always sought to reduce tensions in the region, trying to strengthen security and stability," Rouhani said, according to a statement on the website of Iran's presidency.

Rouhani did not mention Israel's strikes Thursday against what the Jewish state said were Iranian targets in Syria or those against the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.
