U.S. President Barack Obama said Friday he spoke by phone with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, the first communication between American and Iranian leaders since 1979.
But Rouhani scooped Obama's announcement, sending a tweet earlier in the day that said, "In a phone conversation (between) #Iranian & #US Presidents just now: @HassanRouhani: "Have a Nice Day!" @BarackObama: "Thank you. Khodahafez.""
What does Khodahafez mean?
"It means 'God be with you,'" said CNN's Fareed Zakaria.
"In fact, it's a point of contention in the Islamic world. The Persians tend to say 'Khoda Hafez' and lots of people, it's the standard slang. But the hard line Sunnis now say 'Allah Hafez,' because they don't like the Persian word 'Khoda' which is 'God.'
"But that's inside baseball," said Zakaria.
