The two leaders also discussed bilateral relations and their development, according to the channel.
On Friday, US President Donald Trump announced that the US administration had decided not to certify Iran’s compliance with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), also known as the Iran nuclear deal, ordering the US Department of Treasury to impose new sanctions on Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps and four other entities. Trump, however, has not challenged Iran's compliance with the deal at the international level.
