Iran's Hassan Rouhani says he will try to clinch nuclear deal as talks with US resume 15.12.2014 DNA: Popular News
President Hassan Rouhani said on Monday that he would try to clinch a nuclear deal with world powers despite opposition from some quarters in Iran.

Their numbers are few, and they want to muddy the water," Rouhani, widely seen as a pragmatist, told a gathering of officials at a Central Bank seminar in Tehran. He appeared to refer to hardliners including senior commanders of the elite Revolutionary Guards. "The overwhelming majority of our nation - intellectuals, academics, theologians, the greats, and the leadership - are in favour of getting the sanctions removed," Rouhani said. US and Iranian negotiators began a two-day meeting in Geneva before wider talks ...
