Near Eastern Studies Lecturer Saeed Khan on WDET to discuss Iran's new president


WDET's Pat Batcheller talked with Saeed Khan about Iran's new president. "If there's going to be a relationship that develops with (Hasan) Rowhani, the American and Iranian public probably will not see it for several years out in the open," says Khan.

Iran's newly-elected president is reaching out to the United States, saying both countries should look to the future. But Rowhani also repeated that one-on-one talks are only possible if the U.S. never interferes in Iranian affairs. What kind of leader will Rowhani be?

Khan says Rowhani's style may resemble that of a previous Iranian leader, Mohammad Khatami.
