Iranian President Hassan Rouhani [addressing / addressed] the United Nation's General Assembly on Tuesday, calling for "[constructive / construction] engagement" with countries [inclusive / including] the USA. He pointed out that Iran, "does not [seem / seek] to increase tensions with the United States". He added he wanted to work with other nations, "based [on / in] mutual respect and common [interested / interest] ". The speech is seen by many as a [considerable / considerate] change of direction in Iran's foreign policy and could potentially herald new relations with America. The two countries have been [sour / bitter] foes for the past four decades. President Rouhani also [plagued / pledged] never to develop nuclear weapons, telling delegates they had no place [whatsoever / whomsoever] in the defence of his country.

The Iranian leader spoke at [longing / length] about Iran's nuclear program. He stressed that: "Nuclear weapons and other weapons of [massive / mass] destruction have no place in Iran's security and defence doctrine, and [contradict / contracted] our fundamental religious and [ethical / ethics] convictions." He [hinged / hinted] that Iran could be ready to let U.N. inspectors back into the country's nuclear facilities, [saying / said] : "Our national interests make it imperative that we remove any and [total / all] reasonable concerns about Iran's peaceful nuclear program." Mr Rouhani also tried to [repeal / expel] the notion that Iran was a danger to the Middle East. He said: "Iran [poses / posses] absolutely no threat to the world or the region," and added that the "[so-called / this-called] Iranian threat" was imaginary.
