Did I hear right?
Our nuclear programmes are completely transparent. But we are ready to show greater transparency and make clear for the whole world that the steps of the Islamic Republic of Iran are completely within international frameworks. The sanctions are unfair, the Iranian people are suffering, and our (nuclear) activities are legal. These sanctions are illegal and only benefit Israel.
Iran's president-elect was speaking after his historic election victory.

The businessman, who has travelled the world with the Circo de los Hermanos Gasca, said the legislation was "unfair" and "unbalanced" because it only affected circuses.
House of Representatives speaker Augusto Posada disagrees, however, telling EFE that the bill, which was approved earlier this month and is expected to be signed by the president, is of "vital importance" in defending animal rights.
Posada, who drafted the legislation, said circus operators will have until 2015 to comply with the new regulations.
Of the 25 large circuses operating in Colombia, 18 have animal acts, while the owners of the other seven have shifted to acts that do not use animals, industry representatives said. ...
