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.
