Contender hints at running for Iranian presidency

Former Iranian president Mohammad Khatami hinted he may run for the Iranian presidency, although no official announcements have been made.

Middle East specialist¬†Dr. Ghassan Shabaneh speaks with Martin Savidge about the likelihood of Khatami’s candidacy amid the souring socio-economic climate under Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. He also discusses the potential benefits of an American Interests Section in Tehran.

Khatami and other reformists seek a nuclear power program linked to economy rather than the military — a key issue in U.S.-Iran relations.
