On Thursday, Christiane Amampour shared on Twitter how she decided to leave the interview she was supposed to have with the Iranian president in New York on Wednesday evening.

The journalist explains in the thread of her tweet that she intended to question the president in particular on the death of Mahsa Amini, the Iranian woman arrested for not having worn her veil correctly. That would have been “the very first interview with President Raïssi on American soil“, explains Christiane Amanpour. “After weeks of planning and eight hours of setting up translation equipment, lights and cameras, we were readyexplains the journalist. But no sign of President Raisi.”

She then writes that, 40 minutes after the time that had been set for the interview, an aide to the president arrived: “President, he said, suggested me to wear a headscarf, because it was the holy months of Muharram and Safar“, she explains.

I politely declined she continues. We are in New York, where there is no law or tradition concerning the headscarf. I pointed out that no previous Iranian president demanded this when I interviewed them outside of Iran“.

The assistant was nevertheless insistent: “he made it clear to me that the interview would not take place if I did not wear a headscarf“, explains Christiane Amanpour, adding that the assistant spoke of a “matter of respect“and evoked”the situation in Iran”. The journalist, however, maintained her refusal and told the assistant that it was a “unprecedented and unexpected condition“.

In a Twitter thread, Amanpour recounted how her scheduled interview with Raisi on Wednesday night in New York fell through, calling the assistant’s request an “unprecedented and unexpected condition.”

Christiane Amanpour concludes by explaining that the interview did not take place: “we left“, she wrote, “as protests continue in Iran and people are killed, this would have been an important time to speak with President Raisi.”

CNN said in a statement supporting “fully the decision of Christiane and her team to politely refuse the interview with President Raïssi“.
