Rouhani Was Instrumental in Halting Clandestine Nuclear Program – French Ambassador

In an Op-Ed piece in the New York Times, Francois Nicoullaud, France’s ambassador to Tehran from 2001 to 2005, writes that Iran’s President-elect Hassan Rouhani was instrumental in halting IRGC’s clandestine nuclear weapon program in late 2003.

“As Hassan Rouhani prepares to become the next president of the Iranian Islamic Republic, it is worth recalling the leading role he played as Iran’s chief nuclear negotiator in late 2003, when the clandestine program run by the Revolutionary Guards to produce a nuclear weapon was halted,” said Nicoullaud.

Agree. Rohani is pro-nukes than Khamanei and was the architect of "keep talking while you build" approach that has proved very successful.
