Azerbaijan, Baku, Sept. 19 / Trend, T. Jafarov, S. Isayev
Iranian president Hassan Rouhani in an interview with NBC News said that he has "full authority" to reach nuclear agreement with the US, IRIB News reported.
Rouhani went on to note that Iranian government will never be creating a nuclear weapon, and it has never been on that path before.
The U.S. and its Western allies suspect Iran of developing a nuclear weapon - something that Iran denies.
The Islamic Republic has on numerous occasions stated that it does not seek to develop nuclear weapons, using nuclear energy for medical researches instead.
Despite the rules enshrined in the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) entitling every member state, including Iran, to the right of uranium enrichment, Tehran is now under several rounds of UN Security Council sanctions for turning down West's calls to give up its right of uranium enrichment.
Last month, Rouhani stressed that Tehran has always respected international regulations in its nuclear energy program.
"Iran wants nothing beyond what is defined in the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) regarding the nuclear [rights] of countries," he pointed out.
Rouhani is expected to attend the United Nations General Assembly in New York next week, his first UN visit since he was elected to office in June.
