Iran could contemplate cooperating with the United States on restoring security to Iraq if it saw Washington confronting "terrorist groups in Iraq and elsewhere", Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Saturday.

"We all should practically and verbally confront terrorist groups," Rouhani told a press conference broadcast live on state television.

Asked if Tehran would work with its old adversary the United States in tackling advances by Sunni insurgents in Iraq, he replied: "We can think about if we see America starts confronting the terrorist groups in Iraq or elsewhere."
