Rouhani later spoke by phone with French President Emmanuel Macron and voiced support for further cooperation between Iran and Europe, according to the government s official website.
Long-time US-Iran strains have worsened since US President Donald Trump previous year quit a 2015 global agreement to curb Iran's nuclear programme in return for sanctions relief. The paper cited two sources who spoke on condition of anonymity, who said that Macron had invited President Rouhani to attend the G-7 summit.
With the "maximum pressure" campaign against Iran, the U.S. sincerity in its repeated offers of talks is doubtful, the President said as he slammed Washington for pulling out of the 2015 global nuclear deal and reinstating economic sanctions against Tehran, which had been lifted under the deal. Zarif posted on Twitter on Monday that he believed the United States was not interested in talks with Tehran and instead wanted Iran's submission. Twelve months on, Iran hit back by suspending some of its commitments under the deal.
In response, the U.S. ambassador on disarmament Robert Wood said: "Iran simply needs to make up its mind to decide what it wants to do".
Rouhani, with Zarif sitting beside him, defended the foreign minister despite criticism from hardliners over his role in the deal, ultimately abandoned by the US.
The president said the downing of the U.S. drone and the seizure of the United Kingdom tanker were the outcome of Washington and London's own hostile policies against Iran.

'We had so many economic victories (in the wake of the deal) that it enraged some people, ' he said.
"They are afraid of our words and views and that is why they don't want us to talk to their people". They thought Iran's system is weakened, ' he said. Foreign minister Zarif on Monday confirmed reports that he had turned down an offer from a United States senator to meet Trump at the White House last month.
In his earlier televised remarks, Rouhani urged the USA to be ready to negotiate fairly.
"It shows that despite the viciousness and conspiracies of the Great Satan America and its mercenaries, the defense ministry will not hesitate for a moment to defend the Islamic republic and to expand security", he said, quoted by Fars news agency. Its central location in Eurasia and Western Asia, and its proximity to the Strait of Hormuz, give it geostrategic importance.
