Iranian President Rouhani broadly accepts new mediation plan with US

TEHRAN - Iranian President Hassan Rouhani says a plan for talks presented to the United States and Iran by French President Emmanuel Macron is broadly acceptable to the Islamic Republic of Iran.

President Hassan Rouhani said this during a cabinet meeting in Tehran today.

He said some wording needed to be changed in the plan, which outlines that Iran will not pursue nuclear weapons and will help the security of the region and its waterways while Washington will remove all sanctions.
