US-Iran strains have escalated since President Donald Trump withdrew past year from the landmark nuclear deal which Iran signed with world powers.
Regional tensions escalated over attacks Thursday on two tankers near the strategic Strait of Hormuz, which the United States blamed on Iran.
If Tehran knew that one of the tankers is related to Japan, that would mean the attacks were aimed at indicating that the Iranian regime regards Abe as a proxy of Trump and does not trust the Japanese leader, said Javedanfar, who is from Iran.
Mr Rouhani did not refer to last week's tanker incident in his speech to the Conference on Interaction and Confidence Building Measures in Asia, being held in the Tajikistan capital, Dushanbe.
Iran did not specify what actions it will take or say what "positive signals" it expects to see from its global partners.
Russian President Vladimir Putin said Moscow would comply with the agreement and called on the other signatories to do the same. At the same time, Tehran has vowed to return to JCPOA compliance if the remaining signatories to the deal begin to fulfil their obligations under the agreement.

Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister for Political Affairs Seyyed Abbas Araghchi said on Saturday that the 60-day deadline would by no means be extended, stressing that Tehran would proceed with the next steps unless the JCPOA parties met Iran's demands.
Rouhani said Saturday Iran's compliance with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) has repeatedly been verified by the United Nations nuclear agency.
Washington has reimposed crippling unilateral sanctions on Tehran - targeting crucial parts of Iran's economy, especially the banking and oil sectors - and launched a military buildup in the Gulf.
War-risk premiums that owners pay for each visit to the Persian Gulf have now surged to at least US$185,000 (S$254,000) for supertankers, according to people with knowledge of the market. "There is too much that they do that we don't agree with".
The main suspects of these recent incidents in the vicinity of the Persian Gulf are the USA and Israeli intelligence services. "If the waters are becoming unsafe, the supply to the entire Western world could be at risk".
