Iranian leader: End isolation for sake of economy (AFP, January 4, 2015)

Iran's President Hassan Rouhani said Sunday that foreign investors should no longer be viewed as a threat and signaled his country's decades-long isolation from the world economy could soon end. [...]

Rouhani said Iran wanted "lasting and sustainable development" and if it was to escape the recent years of "constriction" caused by its foreign policy then change was necessary.

"Our political life has shown we cannot have sustainable growth while we are isolated," he told an audience of 1,500 economic experts and guests, including the economy minister and head of the central bank.

"The time is past when it used to be said that if a foreign investor comes to Iran, our independence will be in danger," he added.
