Ebola survivor Nancy Writebol to Dallas patient in serious condition: Don't give up

Anderson Cooper spoke with Ebola survivor Nancy Writebol about the first patient diagnosed with Ebola in the U.S. He is currently listed in serious condition at a Dallas hospital.

When asked how she would advise him and his family, Nancy Writebol told Anderson:  “Well in the first place, we would just want them to know that we’ve been praying for them and we know this is a very difficult time. I think one of the things they should know about Ebola is that, you know, you can have really good days, Anderson, and then you can have really bad days and it’s an up and down disease. And so if they’re having a really bad day, don’t give up. Because it’s very possible the next day is going turn around and look better.”

The full interview will air tonight at 8 pm on CNN’s AC360°.

Rouhani: Iran is "against terrorism"

CNN’s FAREED ZAKARIA GPS features an interview with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani regarding the threat posed by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, the P5+1 nuclear negotiations, and the harsh judgment by Islamic authorities in Iran.

TEXT HIGHLIGHTS

Rouhani on Iran’s stance towards terrorism: “Iran, from the very first moment, did not hesitate in fighting against terrorism.  Other countries apparently had their doubts for quite some time.  They were under the impression that, be it as it may, they acted quite late in the game.”

 

Rouhani on the P5+1 negotiations: “today we have a - we are faced with a very good opportunity vis-a-vis the nuclear talks and negotiations. This good opportunity was created in reality only last year.  In result of the expression of the political will of the majority of the people of Iran and their vast participation in those elections and the mandates received out of those elections. A new atmosphere was created in result of all of that.  We must all make good use of it, our side, as well as 5-Plus-1. Everyone together must make good use of this historic opportunity.”

 

Rouhani on the persecution of dancers in the “Happy” video: “I, as the president of Iran, have been sworn and put there by the will of the people to protect the constitution. If the constitution is ever violated, it is my legal responsibility to take the appropriate steps and implement appropriate actions. “

 A full transcript of the interview is available after the jump.
