Iran’s President-elect Hassan Rouhani has declared that the country is ready to show more transparency on its nuclear program.

In his first news conference since Friday's vote, Rouhani also described as unfair sanctions imposed on the country over the issue, according to the BBC.

The President-elect also stressed that he would oppose halting Iran's uranium enrichment.
"Our nuclear programs are completely transparent," Rouhani said.

"But we are ready to show greater transparency and make clear for the whole world that the steps of the Islamic Republic of Iran are completely within international frameworks," he added.

Iran's president does not have authority to set major policies such as the direction of the nuclear program or relations with the West. All such decisions rest with the ruling clerics and the powerful Revolutionary Guard, which have so far appeared to embrace Rouhani, according to international media.

as for deterrent on US soil, laughable! Like in Boston? US n UK has accepted jihadists Chechens for years, people guilty of warcrimes. Reason, to give them somewhere to regroup their efforts against Russia.

Russia warned for years about those boston terrorists, but US did nothing because the perceived target was Russia and that is splendid in the eyes of Americans. But the last few years Russia didn't just win the war, their effectiveness in killing terrorists has become very very professional, they find them and kill many of them. At the end of each year there's collected report.

Boston bombers got scared and once back in the US decided to attack America instead. All of a sudden Russian information becomes valuable in the US, what other jihadists in America don't dare go to Russia but can decide to attack US soil? If it weren't for that, US wouldn't have contacted the Russians and instead looked the other way as those jihadists targeted Russia.

US symbol shouldn't be an eagle, it should be a rat.

You are not the deterrent, you are the cause. Who back Saudi-Arabia the country that has almost monopoly on funding terrorism.

Right now you are going to arm Al Qaeda in Syria, and you talk about markets? You take a secular country and want to hand it over to jihadist animals. Ask the Christians how US policy in the middle east has helped them, Iraq lost most of them, and they went to Syria as a safe haven!

Arab Spring = Islamic Harvest.
With US backing.

You want perpetual war, think if the radicals take over Syria, how will they behave towards Israel and how will the US react to that? Todays friends are tomorrows enemies. Like Saddam was. It's a play that is stuck on repeat, nothing has changed.

Speaking of Iran, they had real democracy until the US staged a coup n installed the Shah and when he too didn't want to let Iranian oil be controlled, you replaced him with a mullah who you thought would serve like the Saudi dogs but Iran got tired of your constant imperialist games.

If you are so concerned about democracy, why don't you do something about Bahrain, but ofc you don't want to mention that because you have your navy stationed there n that's all that matters.

Did you know that Afghanistan was in the modern world before Reagan decided to fund the jihadists to take over?
With one decision you took the country to the stone age...

US is a rouge state that is a danger to the world, if we are to have peace this century, the US beast must be reined in, for the good of all.

You have to look at US policy as a deterrent effect toward terrorism on US soil.

Terrorism has moved closer to the Middle East and Africa through civil and religious unrest.

Remember the US can build new Trade Centers and what about the Middle East, nuclear bombs.

Jerry, US is going to be self-sufficient with oil n gas, fracking, hope you haven't missed that piece of news.

Lets see you getting rid of Nuclear plants? Yeah, I thought so.

Can't blame Iran for wanting nuclear weapons, if that's what they want, look at US involvement with Iraq, just one of x examples in the middle east. US involvement = huge disaster.

Honorable Hassan,

Maybe you do not know that Iran is an oil producing country and the population of Iran does not need nuclear energy due to its size and population growth and including the industrial sustainability.

Now to prove Transparency you need to prove the type of sustainability of the nuclear program and the end use civil or military.
