The phone call comes hours after Mr Rouhani said Iran would remain committed to the 2015 deal if its interests were protected, while his foreign minister hoped the pact could be redesigned without Washington as a member'.

"If the remaining five countries continue to abide by the agreement, Iran will remain in the deal despite the will of America", Rouhani said during a speech on state television, calling President Donald Trump's decision to pull the US out of the agreement a "violation of morals".

The meeting will take place as part of the ongoing foreign trip of Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif dedicated to the implementation of the Iranian nuclear deal, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), after the United States withdrawal from the multilateral agreement.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif kicked off a tour of other countries involved in the agreement with a visit to China on Saturday, noting that the tour was meant to reassure other signatory countries and discuss ways to restructure the deal.

Mr Rouhani has said Iran would stay committed to the deal, which Britain, China, France, Germany and Russian Federation also signed, provided those powers could ensure Iran was protected from sanctions against key sectors of its economy such as oil.

"The policy of Iran in the region is based on efforts to maintain security, stability and the fight against terrorism", said Mr. Rouhani, emphasizing, "today, we are happy that we were able to help the Iraqi government and nation to bring ISIL to its knees".

Sirisena's visit is taking place at the invitation of his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani.
