August 13, 2013 21:24

Alluding to Iran's nuclear program, newly-instated president Hassan Rouhani's nominee for foreign minister on Tuesday stressed that Tehran's new government would fight to maintain the rights of the Islamic Republic in all fields, Iran's Fars News Agency reported on Tuesday.

“We will not give up even an iota of the Iranian nation’s rights and we will widen the scope of our friendships in the world, while we will be ready to force other actors in the international arena to turn their hostile attitude and behavior into (interactive) relations (with Iran) based on cooperation,” Fars quoted Javad Zarif as saying.
