Iranian president Hassan Rouhani has vowed that his government will never develop nuclear weapons.
In an interview with NBC News days before he travels to New York for a UN appearance, the new Iranian president also insisted he had "complete authority" to negotiate a nuclear deal with the United States and other Western powers.
"We have time and again said that under no circumstances would we seek any weapons of mass destruction, including nuclear weapons, nor will we ever," Rouhani said.
