Rohani: Iran Seeking 'Win-Win' Outcome In Nuclear Talks

Iranian President Hassan Rohani delivers a speech on Tehran's Freedom Square to mark the 36th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution on February 11.

Iran's President Hassan Rohani says Iran is seeking a "win-win" outcome in the nuclear negotiations with global powers.

Rohani made the comments on February 11 at a state rally marking the anniversary of the 1979 revolution.

He said "win-win" would entail Iran showing transparency in its nuclear activities in exchange for a removal of "wrong, inhumane, and illegal" sanctions.

The Iranian president also pledged to defend Iran's rights at the negotiations aimed at reaching a comprehensive deal that would prevent Tehran from obtaining nuclear weapons.

"The same way that we defended our independence on the battlefield, we have and will continue to defend our independence at the negotiating table," Rohani said.

The six powers -- Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia, and the United States -- and Iran have agreed to seek a political framework agreement by March and a comprehensive deal by June 30.
