Fresh Negotiations: Does Iran seek to have "non-nuclear" sanctions lifted?
President Hassan Rouhani seeks to have international "non-nuclear" sanctions, especially those pertaining to terrorism, human rights, and Iran’s ballistic missile program lifted to improve his stance domestically as he faces criticism from hardliners. This could also enhance Iran's integration into the international community. However, his bid is unlikely to succeed due to influential institutions within Iran opposing such attempts.
