The Iranian President highlighted the positive aspects of the bilateral cooperation at the international level, including at the United Nations, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation and NAM .
"The two countries share identical viewpoints and we should further develop bilateral economic and cultural cooperation," he told Chairman of the Indonesian House of Representatives Marzuki Alie in Tehran.
Rouhani stressed the need for unity among Islamic countries, especially when some parties are seeking to create rifts within the Islamic world.
Dr. Rouhani said the two countries' Muslims should promote true Islamic culture and attempt to convince others that Muslims are not violent people or terrorists.
The Indonesian Parliament Speaker expressed satisfaction with his visit to Iran and hoped that it would lead to the expansion of long-lasting bilateral relations.
"During our visit to Iran, we have come to the realization that Iran is an advanced and powerful country," Marzuki Alie was quoted as saying on the Iranian President's website.
