You say that you would like a different Iran and we certainly talked a lot about -- when it comes in the nuclear program -- it comes to human rights abuses as well.
How would an Iran under -- presidencies look if the Ayatollah also still remains in power.

The international community has to.
-- lost -- in the Islamic republic and is planning to -- because it doesn't trust what the international community is asking you to do.
