Rouhani, elected in June, is widely viewed as more moderate than his predecessor, Mahmoud Ahmedinejad, who used speeches at the General Assembly to question the Holocaust and the official explanation that the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks were caused by hijacked planes.
Iran is the subject of U.N. sanctions over its suspected development of nuclear weapons, which its government denies.
