The United States should revise its policy toward the Middle East and take steps aimed at de-escalating tensions in the region, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Sunday during the phone conversation with Emir of Qatar Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani.

“Tehran believes that the ease of regional tensions is beneficial for everyone and we hope that the Americans realise that the path they have chosen is incorrect, which will not have any winner. They have to change their behaviour”, Rouhani said, as quoted by the presidential press service.
