Rowhani Steadfast on Uranium Enrichment despite Hopes

Radio Free Europe reports Iranian President-elect Hassan Rowhani says "more transparency" in the country’s nuclear program would help to ease international economic sanctions on Tehran. 

Speaking at his first news conference since the June 14 election, he also criticized the sanctions as "brutal" and unjustified. Rowhani, however, ruled out halting the country’s uranium-enrichment program.
