The inauguration of the new president of Iran, Hasan Rouhani, presents "an opportunity" for Tehran to resolve concerns over its nuclear programme and better engage with the West, the Obama administration said on Sunday.

In a statement marking the formal handing over of power to the moderate cleric from his hardline predecessor, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the White House congratulated the Iranian people for "making their voices heard" and calling for "change". It added that should the new government in Iran move towards meeting its "international obligations", then it would find a "willing partner in the United States".

Sharia for all....via White House.
