It’s midnight here in Tehran. My interview with Iranian President Ahmadinejad is scheduled for 6:00 a.m. tomorrow morning. President Ahmadinejad, apparently, gets up at 4:00, goes for a run, then goes to the gym. And so when he’s done with all of that, I will interview him.
We’ve got lots of issues to discuss – the plot to assassinate the Saudi ambassador, Libya and Gadhafi, what happens in Syria, and, of course, this new announcement from President Obama about U.S. troops leaving Iraq.
We’re going to get President Ahmadinejad’s reaction to all of those things. As you know, he’s a very seasoned politician, so I’m sure he’ll have already given some thought to what he’s going to say.
The exclusive interview will air live on CNN International on Friday at 10:30 p.m. ET. The full interview will also air on “Fareed Zakaria GPS” on Sunday at 10 a.m. ET on CNN/U.S.
