Iran president : Pact recognizes Tehran’s nuclear ‘rights’

TEHRAN, Iran – Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani says the nuclear deal reached with world powers recognizes Tehran’s “rights” to maintain an atomic program.

The remarks come just hours after Iranian envoys and world powers reached a first-step accord in Geneva aimed at easing Western concerns that Tehran could one day seek nuclear weapons.
