President Rouhani also said he did not request to meet with President Trump. In the year since the deal has been reached, the military budget grew almost 40%, adding, "The dictatorship used the funds to build nuclear capable missiles, increase internal repression, finance terrorism and.slaughter in Syria and Yemen".
In the meeting held on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly, Rouhani sought Japan's cooperation in ensuring the implementation of the Iran nuclear deal, and Abe responded that Japan continues to support it, according to the official.
"We do hope with all the law-abiding and multilateral-oriented countries that we can ultimately put this behind us in an easier fashion than it was earlier anticipated", Rouhani said.
Germany, France, the UK, China and Russian Federation say Iran is complying with the nuclear agreement and should continue to do so.

"In less than two years, my administration has accomplished more than nearly any administration in the history of our country", Trump claimed before audible laughs could be heard from the assembled delegations.
He claimed that his administration has made more progress toward denuclearization than the media and public know, and bragged about the letters he's received from his North Korean counterpart.
The president also highlighted some of his foreign priorities, noting that he had met with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, and claimed that North Korean nuclear weapons developments has slowed.
"I didn't expect that reaction, but that's OK", he said. However, on September 25, Trump gave a speech to the United Nations, and various world leaders laughed during it. And a lot of terrific things are happening'.
