Two conservative MPs have criticized the Rouhani administration for its foreign policy priorities.

Bijan Nobaveh, a deputy representing Tehran in the Islamic Consultative Assembly, said tying the country’s local problems to the government’s foreign policy is bound to cause irreparable harm to the country.

Alireza Salimi, who represents Mahalat in the chamber, said in the nuclear case government has pinned too much hope on the American mirage, whereas the US is not trustworthy.
