TEHRAN, Iran — Iranians pored over news accounts Wednesday of President Hasan Rouhani’s speech to the U.N. General Assembly, with those eager to break out of Iran’s isolation expressing disappointment that their new leader didn’t meet with President Barack Obama or offer more concrete steps for sanctions relief.

Hard-liners, however, seemed mostly pleased with Rouhani’s steadfast defense Tuesday of Iran’s right to enrich uranium and develop its nuclear industry. Western countries accuse Iran of refining uranium for the purpose of building a nuclear bomb, and have made sanctions relief contingent on Tehran stopping the enrichment.
