President Hassan Rouhani said the West feels that it needs to recognize the rights of the Iranian nation and the wide gaps that initially existed in nuclear talks have now narrowed.
After a meeting with the heads of the other two branches of government Tuesday, the president told reporters the nuclear case was one of the issues that came up for discussion at the meeting. “Fortunately, the nuclear case is progressing within the framework the Islamic establishment has set. The negotiating team has the backing of all senior state officials and the Supreme Leader has on occasion praised the members of the team.”
The president also said next year’s budget, banking and business issues, air pollution and investment in transportation as well as regional questions were also discussed at his meeting with the parliament speaker and judiciary chief.
