Iranian President Hasan Rouhani speaks during a debate in parliament on his proposed cabinet, in Tehran, Iran, Monday, Aug. 12, 2013. Hard-line Iranian lawmakers have challenged the new president’s proposed Cabinet makeup, accusing him of nominating pro-Western figures and opposition supporters to ministerial posts. But President Hasan Rouhani told parliament on Monday that his government’s priority will be to ease tensions with the outside world and improve the sanctions-battered economy.
