Iranian President Hassan Rouhani will be arriving in India for a three-day visit to discuss regional and international issues of "mutual interest".

Rouhani, who has been a key player in Iran's political life since the revolution in 1979, has promised a modern and outward looking Iran in his election campaign for a second term. His view was in sharp contrast to the vision his main rival Ebrahim Raisi.

Rouhani is the seventh President of Iran, who has been in the post since August 2013, has been an influential figure in Iran even before he became the country's President. He was a part of Iran's defence establishment during the 1980-88 Iran-Iraq War and subsequently held several important political posts.
