Rouhani: Western Efforts To Limit Enrichment Have Had Little Impact

Iran denies it is seeking a nuclear weapon


TEHRAN, Dec. 9 (UPI) — Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said Monday the Western effort to curb progress in his country's nuclear sector had little impact.

"You see that those powers, which were thinking of destroying Iran's enrichment capability, have now admitted that they cannot stop Iran's industrial progress and enrichment due to the indigenization of this industry and its expansion," he was quoted by the semiofficial Fars News Agency as saying.
