Christiane Amanpour interviews Iranian President Hassan Rouhani

CNN's Christiane Amanpour sat down to interview Iranian President Rouhani just after his speech at the United Nations. It comes on the heels of what many are calling a charm offensive. Rouhani used the opportunity to speak directly to the American people.

Anderson discussed the Rouhani interview with Christiane Amanpour, senior political analyst David Gergen, and Mike Doran of the Brookings Institution.

    Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom Suzan Johnson Cook also delivered remarks on the report, noting that “Thousands of people around the world are jailed because of what they believe, or don’t believe. In Iran, more than 116 Bahai’s are in prison for teaching and expressing their faith.” The Ambassador also discussed the plight of several other religious groups around the world that are persecuted because of their faith. She stated that, “Religious freedom is essential for a stable, peaceful, and thriving society,” and noted that, “[a]s this report makes clear, much work remains to be done.” She closed by expressing the U.S. government’s commitment to the issue, stating, “The challenges are daunting, but we remain committed to working tirelessly to ensure religious freedom for all.”

    Hay Rohani , don't you think excution of innocent people and underther age women is against the humanity too?
    You have no power to make any decision to help people of Iran , except by permission of your owners(Russia and China)
    Remember what happened to Ghadafi , don't let this happening to you and your family.

    Your show lost a lot credibility late night. Paul Wolfowicz was invited to opine about Middle East diplomacy involving Iran? This neo-Con got it dead wrong on Iraq, literally lying to the Americans about "oil revenues" paying for the Iraq "skirmish" and WMDs. But the most revolting was Howard Dean mouthing off about how does not trust Rouhani, and we should not, because of his involvement in the death of thousands of Iranians. And you have this war monger Wolfowicz that represented the worst of the Bush Adm on your show? Really? The hypocrisy was choking.
