"We wish for the Islamic Republic, and for our bilateral relations, stability, continuity and prosperity," Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid said in a tweet.

Ebrahim Raisi secured a landslide victory on Saturday in Iran’s presidential election.

With all 28.9 million ballots counted, Raisi was elected with a tally of 17.9 million, Interior Minister Abdolreza Rahmani Fazli said on state TV. Turnout in Friday's four-man race was a record low of around 48.8%.

Outgoing pragmatist President Hassan Rouhani, barred by the constitution from seeking a third term, visited Raisi at his office to congratulate him, and Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said he would lead Iran well.

"We will stand by and cooperate fully with the president-elect for the next 45 days, when the new government takes charge (in early August)," state media quoted Rouhani as saying.
