4 years ago10 views

Iran’s new President Hassan Rouhani has told Western nations that the only way to interact with Iran is through dialogue and called on them to abandon the "language of sanctions" in dealing with the country's uranium enrichment programme.

Rouhani, a moderate cleric who won a landslide victory in the June 14 presidential elections, spoke after being sworn in as president in an open session of parliament on Sunday.
