Iran's President Hassan Rouhani called on Middle East states Thursday to "drive back Zionism", saying that Israel and its US ally were the the root causes of the region's problems.
"The region’s nations have lived alongside each other for centuries and never had a problem... If there is a problem, it is caused by others," Rouhani said in an Army Day address.
"Let us stand together, be together and rid the region of the aggressor’s presence," he added.
