Rouhani heads to UN in bid to win Iran support against 'cruel' US

Rouhani heads to UN in bid to win Iran support against 'cruel' USPresident Hassan Rouhani set off for New York on Monday to attend the UN General Assembly on a mission to win Iran support against “cruel” pressure from arch-foe the United States. Speaking before flying out, Rouhani said his delegation was heading to the UN gathering despite reluctance from President Donald Trump’s administration to issue them visas. Tehran and Washington have been at loggerheads since May last year when Trump abandoned a 2015 nuclear deal and subsequently began reimposing sanctions on Iran in a stated campaign of “maximum pressure”.
