SHANGHAI - Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Thursday he is not pessimistic about reaching an agreement over nuclear talks with the United States, Russia, China, France, Britain and Germany.

The six powers want Iran to agree to scale back uranium enrichment and other sensitive nuclear activity and accept more rigorous UN inspections to deny it any capability of quickly producing atomic bombs, in exchange for an end to sanctions.


Tehran denies having any such underlying ambition, saying its nuclear program is for only for power generation and medical purposes.
