Iranian state TV quoted Khamenei as saying that the United States and Western powers are regarded with suspicion in the Middle East.

But he said a long history of positive relations between Iran and neutral Sweden has created optimism that there "will be fertile ground for developing cooperation."

Lofven also met Iran's President Hassan Rohani during his visit to Tehran.
