Iranian President Rouhani took the oath of office this past weekend and already wants to have talks with the outside world over releasing Iran from sanctions. He is wanting face to face meetings with Europe and eventually with the United States. Sanctions have been taking there toll on the economy with teachers not getting paid. As well as less income coming in from oil. China has been bartering with goods rather than paying in cash to Iran for its purchases of oil.
Khamenei, the supreme leader does not agree with this President and feels that these talks would not prove beneficial to Iran. Israel has said that a nuclear Iran in any way shape or form is unacceptable. More to come in the upcoming months as the man has only been in power for a couple of days.
