Iran president ready for nuclear negotiations
UNITED NATIONS (AP) -- Iranian President Hassan Rouhani says his nation is prepared to immediately engage in stalled negotiations over its disputed nuclear program -- but only under certain conditions.
Rouhani told the United Nations General Assembly in New York on Tuesday that he is also open to talks with the United States "to manage differences." It was his first appearance on the world stage since he was elected in the summer.
Nuclear negotiations between Iran and six world powers have been stalled for months but Iran agreed to a new meeting this Thursday on the sidelines of the General Assembly.
Rouhani said every issue can be resolved through moderation and rejection of violence.
