(AP) Iran's president-elect believes it's possible to strike a deal that would allow the country to keep enriching uranium while assuring the West it will not produce a nuclear weapon.


That's according to remarks by Hasan Rowhani from an interview recorded four months ago and rerun on Iranian state TV on Friday.


In the interview, Rowhani said his government would look for a win-win deal to resolve the disputes with the United States.


He also suggested that under his presidency, Iran would seek to convince the U.S. and its allies that dialogue and not sanctions are the way forward.


The broadcast appears to be intended to underline Rowani's pledge to follow a "path of moderation" and pursue greater openness over Iran's nuclear program.


He is set to take office in August.
