Utah Iranian American Cautiously Optimistic about Iran’s New President

(KCPW News) Earlier this August, Iran inaugurated a new president: Hassan Rouhani. So far, Rouhani has tried to hone the image of a moderate reformer – a president who will depart from the more combative rhetoric of his predecessor, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

So how do Iranians view the new president? KCPW’s Ryan Cunningham sat down with long-time Utah resident and Iranian American Khosrow Semnani to get his perspective.

Khosrow Semnani is the founder of Omid for Iran and the Semnani Family Foundation. He is also the CEO and Founder of S. K. Hart Management, which recently purchased Trolley Square.
