Iran reformist: Give new President Rowhani time
Thursday - 6/20/2013, 9:49am EDT
TEHRAN, Iran (AP) -- Iran's key reformist is urging supporters of the country's newly elected president to have patience as Hasan Rowhani takes the helm and tackles the country's sanctions-battered economy and tensions with the West.
Mohammad Khatami's appeal came during a meeting Thursday with a group of Iranian students. The semiofficial ISNA news agency quotes Khatami as urging Rowhani's backers not to expect "miracles."
Khatami preceded Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as president and is considered a key Iranian reformist.
Iran's president cannot set policy on major decisions such as the nuclear program, but can influence views by the ruling clerics.
Rowhani, a former nuclear negotiator, is considered a relative moderate, but also has deep ties to Iran's Islamic establishment. He says he favors international outreach and efforts to ease sanctions over Iran's nuclear program.
