TEHRAN, Iran — Iran's President Hassan Rouhani says his country achieved its main goals in the landmark nuclear deal reached with world powers last month.

In a national address late Sunday, he says the accord recognizes Iran's right to enrich uranium and lifts international sanctions.

He says negotiations between Iran and the six-nation group -- the U.S., Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany -- worked because of "constructive interaction" instead of confrontation.

The U.S. Congress and Iran's parliament will vote on the accord in the coming months before it is implemented.

Western nations have long suspected Iran of pursuing nuclear weapons alongside its civilian program, allegations denied by Tehran, which insists its nuclear activities are for entirely peaceful purposes.
