Iran's Khatami signals he will run for presidency
Former President Mohammad Khatami has given the strongest signal so far that he will run in Iran's June presidential election, telling supporters he should "fulfill my promises" to announce his candidacy.

The comments, sent to Reuters on Wednesday, were made in a meeting with youth groups. A close ally also told Reuters on Wednesday Khatami, who was a president from 1997 to 2005, would make an official announcement about his candidacy soon.

"I should fulfill my promises made to (Iran's) people and announce my readiness (to run) despite my personal wish," he said in the comments.
