Meet the new Iranian president

He was elected only months ago, but he is already starting to change the face of Iran on the world stage. Hassan Rouhani, a former nuclear negotiator and national security adviser, is Iran's new president, and he made his big debut at the United Nations General Assembly Tuesday by asking the world to say, "yes to peace and no to war."

Who is this man, and can the U.S. really trust his charm offensive? CNN's Barbara Starr reports.

Be sure to catch Christiane Amanpour's interview with Pres. Hassan Rouhani on AC360, tonight 8 pm ET.

    This new President and the stands he take, I believe is a result of Pres. Obamas leadership. Rouani ran for pres. on Change which is directly from Obamas play book. Then Rouanis open outlook on humanity is directly parellel to Obama. That's why we as Americans have to keep electing Good people to leadership which will do the most at promoting peace and goodwill around the world. They look at our actions and not just our words....
