Rohani’s Nuclear Talks Offer Stops Short on Enrichment

Iranian President Hassan Rohani’s offer to participate in nuclear negotiations stops short of halting his nation’s uranium enrichment program as demanded by countries that imposed sanctions crippling its economy.

“We are ready to engage in serious and substantial talks without wasting time,” Rohani said yesterday in his first news conference as president two days after being sworn in. He offered no new proposals and called on the U.S. to take “practical steps” at the start. “We seek a win-win game and this is possible,” he said.
