Iran's president says he doesn't support a bill to defy U.N. sanctions and boost the country's uranium enrichment program.

Iran's parliament passed the measure following the assassination of a top nuclear scientist last month.

President Hassan Rouhani says the bill will be counterproductive for Iran's diplomatic efforts.
