Iranian President Hassan Rouhani wavered between criticism and engagement in a speech to the U.N. Thursday, slamming Western blunders in the Middle East but signaling commitment to securing a deal on nuclear power.At the U.N. for a second time since being elected in 2013, Rouhani has been courted by European leaders seeking greater support from Tehran in the war on ISIS, responsible for beheading two Americans and one British hostage.Underlining the growing importance that the West affords Tehran, British Prime Minister David Cameron held landmark talks with Rouhani Wednesday, leading Cameron to declare that Iran could be "part of the solution".Rouhani also met French President Francois Hollande for a second time and is expected to meet German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier Thursday.
