Azerbaijan, Baku, Sep.28 /Trend R.Zamanov/
Some 100 IRGC volunteer students protested against the position of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani demonstrated by him in New York, the Mehr news agency reported on Saturday.
The protesters threw shoes at Rouhani at the Tehran International Airport, the report said.
But according to IRNA news agency's report, the groups that support Rouhani's position were also present at the airport.
In a spontaneous move, hundreds of happy Iranians welcomed the country's president Hassan Rouhani at the Mehrabad International Airport, the report said.
President Rouhani was coming back from his first trip to New York to attend the U.N. General Assembly, the IRNA News Agency reported.
Happy Iranians shouted slogans in support of the president, including the famous catchphrase "Thank You, Rouhani".
"Thank You, Rouhani" quickly became a catchphrase among young Iranians after the election of Rouhani as the country's president and the following reforms.
People also hold violet banners including: "Yes to you, no to war."
U.S. President Barack Obama and his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani talked over the phone in the first direct communication between the heads of state of the two countries in decades.
Iran's Presidential Office confirmed the historic communication and said Obama and Rouhani expressed the political will of Tehran and Washington to resolve the dispute over Iran's nuclear program.
The Presidential Office also added that the two leaders, who spoke before Rouhani's departure from New York, emphasized the need to find a swift resolution to Iran's nuclear case.
Obama said that he and President Rouhani have given orders for the establishment of teams tasked with drafting a deal on Iran's nuclear energy program.
Obama emphasized that the resolution of the nuclear issue could create a mutually respectful relationship between Washington and Tehran.
But he also noted that Washington and Tehran have a tough task ahead for the re-establishment of their relations.
