Iran President defends interim nuclear deal : worldleaks
Iran‘s president has found an interim nuclear deal reached with world powers last month that eases some sanctions in return for a halt to parts of the Islamic Republic’s uranium enrichment programme, saying improving the economy is as important as maintaining a peaceful nuclear programme.
Hassan Rouhani told students in Tehran today that economic progress can’t be attained without interaction with the outside world. He said his government will continue his policy of moderation, in sharp line to the bombastic style of his predecessor Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
The six-month interim nuclear deal includes greater access for UN inspectors to Iran and a cap on the level of uranium enrichment.
Rouhani faces the hard task of selling the interim agreement to skeptics and hard-liners at home.
