About the Christiane Amanpour Interview

I’m CNN’s Chief International Correspondent and host of CNN International’s flagship global affairs program, “Amanpour.”

I started at CNN in 1983 (on the international desk) and have covered almost every major international story since then: The first gulf war, the Bosnian war, the Rwandan genocide, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and more recently the wars in Syria and Ukraine.

I’ve interviewed the past four Iranian presidents, three Israeli Prime Ministers, Presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, Muammar Gaddafi, Hosni Mubarak, Bashar al-Assad, Robert Mugabe, and the leaders of Brazil, the UK, Nigeria, France, Italy, Qatar, Ukraine, to name just a few.

From ISIS to the Iranian nuclear talks, journalism to equal rights for women, AMA!

UPDATE: Thanks so much for all the questions! I've got to dash and interview Greece's top negotiator on how to resolve the crisis and keep the country in Europe. Hope to do it again soon.
