Iran Parliament ‘essence of piety’, says adviser to Ayatollah Khamenei


Hossein Dehghan is tipped by some as a future President.

Away from worries about the virus outbreak, there has still been talk here about the election.

I spoke to Hossein Dehghan – Adviser to the Supreme Leader, a former top general and defence minister. He’s tipped by some even as a future President.

I began by asking him what impact General Qasem Soleimani’s assassination has had on Iranian morale.
