TEHRAN (AFP), 5, 5, 2017- Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, defended the nuclear deal by saying it had allowed a massive increase in oil sales and opened the way for Iran to take a central position in regional diplomacy

Iran's President Hassan Rouhani criticised conservative opponents for trying to sabotage the nuclear deal with world powers and vowed more civil rights during Friday's second presidential election debate.
In rare criticism of the elite Revolutionary Guards, Rouhani slammed the decision to write anti-Israel messages on ballistic missiles before testing them.

"We saw how they wrote slogans on missiles and showed underground (missile) cities to disrupt the JCPOA (nuclear deal)," he said during the debate, which comes ahead of the May 19 election.
