The nuclear deal indicates that the most complicated disputes can be resolved in negotiation table, the Iranian president added.
He further said that Iran has chosen the path of moderation.
Rouhani also unveiled that during the nuclear talks in Vienna and Lausanne he has called foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif repeatedly and asked him to leave the negotiation table, if the counter part does not accept Iran's demands.
After several months of talks, on July 14, Iran and the P5+1 (US, Russia, China, France, UK, and Germany) announced a final accord, curbing Iran 's nuclear program in exchange for the lifting of most international sanctions.
Following the deal members of the UN Security Council passed unanimously a resolution on July 20 endorsing the deal.
