DUBAI - Iranian President Hassan Rouhani gave a vigorous defense of nuclear negotiations to a domestic crowd on Sunday, pledging to reach a deal that would lift the hardship of sanctions as the talks enter their final weeks.

Speaking at a televised rally in the northeastern city of Bojnord, to mark the second anniversary of his 2013 election victory, Rouhani used sweeping rhetoric to play up the benefits of easing Iran's long international isolation.

"With the guidance of the Supreme Leader and the support of the people, we will enrich both uranium and the economy in Iran," he told a crowd of thousands.

"We want the nation to be happy and productive, to have a bright economy and social welfare -- and to have centrifuges too."
