US seeking excuse to confront Iran, says new president

Iranian state TV is quoting the country’s new president as saying that the United States is seeking an excuse to confront Iran over its nuclear programme. The late on Saturday report says the remarks by Hassan Rouhani came during his meeting with North Korean official Kim Yong Nam, who is in Tehran for Rouhani’s Sunday inauguration.

‘We believe the United States and the Westerners are seeking an excuse to confront the countries that they do not consider friends,’ Rouhani was quoted as saying.
The West suspects Iran is pursuing nuclear weapon, a charge Iran denies.  Rouhani, elected in June, has promised greater openness over the country’s nuclear programme.
