TEHRAN: Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, as decision time looms for a nuclear deal with world powers, sought Wednesday to win the support of the religious community at the "backbone" of the Islamic republic.
"For the government and the people of Iran, Qom is not a city, but the symbol of religious life," Rouhani, who faces criticism on the home front, said in a speech in the Shiite holy city of Qom.
