Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said on Wednesday that tension in the region could be reduced and stability reduced, adding that Tokyo did not want a new war in the region.
Abe told a news conference with Iranian President Hassan Rowhani in Tehran that Tokyo would prevent a war in the region.
In turn, Iranian President Hassan Rowhani said that his country looks forward to maintaining the nuclear agreement signed in 2015, with the United States and a number of European countries.
He added that his country would not start a war with the United States, but would respond to any aggression against it.
Rohani stressed that Iran is looking forward to future cooperation with Tokyo in the field of peaceful nuclear activities, pointing out that it agrees with Japan in opposing nuclear disarmament.
The Iranian president welcomed Japan's decision to solve the problems of buying Iranian oil and financial problems.
Abe is visiting Iran amid escalating disagreements over its nuclear program to discuss with Iranian leaders during the two-day visit the current tension between Tehran and Washington.
