Elected in a landslide eleven months ago, Rouhani reversed the antagonistic stance his predecessor Mahmoud Ahmadinejad took towards the West and led Iran into talks about its nuclear programme that resume in Vienna next week ahead of a self-imposed July 20 deadline for a deal.Rouhani's opponents have made their discontent clear.On Tuesday, hardliners in Iran's parliament tried but failed to push through a censure motion against the chief nuclear negotiator, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, for refusing to deny the "lie of the Holocaust".
