For non-zero l values, we present an analytical solution of the radial Schrodinger equation for the rotating Morse potential using the Pekeris approximation within the framework of the asymptotic iteration method. The bound state energy eigenvalues and corresponding wavefunctions are obtained for a number of diatomic molecules and the results are compared with the findings of the super-symmetry, the hypervirial perturbation, the Nikiforov-Uvarov, the variational, the shifted 1/N and the modified shifted 1/N expansion methods.
