Hassan Rouhani sets new vision for Iran, "constructive engagement"

In what could be the most significant gesture in more than three decades, the new president of Iran Hassan Rouhani tweeted that he "has not ruled out the possibility of meeting with Obama" at the United Nations general assembly next week, adding "everything is possible in the world of politics."

He's also wrote in the Washington post that he wants to "engage in constructive interaction with the world."
