TEHRAN - Foreign Policy magazine has named Iranian President Hassan Rouhani as one of the top 100 global thinkers of 2013, where Rouhani comes in at number 18 on the "decision-maker" section of the annual list.
“Rouhani's early charm offensive with the United States is a promising sign. And in a relationship that hasn't shown promise in decades, that's saying something,” wrote the magazine, highlighting foreign policy efforts he has made to open a new door to the international community.
“Today, Rouhani is once again trying to present himself as a pragmatist,” wrote Foreign Policy about the Iranian president who has achieved major diplomatic breakthroughs over the past three decades.
The FP Top 100 Global Thinkers list is conducted by Foreign Policy magazine on the basis of responding readers' ballot (and requires registration to view their recent lists). The objective was to determine the 100 most important public intellectuals who are still alive and active in public life.
