Hassan Rouhani, Iran's new president, vowed to reward voters support for his message of moderation yesterday by securing the removal of international sanctions imposed on his country over its controversial nuclear drive. 

Mr Rouhani formally took over as Iran's president in a meeting with Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the Islamic republic's Supreme Leader, and in a speech promised to see the end of "oppressive" sanction.
