Zarif, Mogherini are strong contenders for Nobel Peace Prize

October 3, 2017

TEHRAN – Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and European Union foreign affairs chief Federica Mogherini could win this year’s Nobel Peace Prize, according to researchers who predict potential winners.

Henrik Urdal, the head of the Peace Research Institute of Oslo (PRIO), which lists potential winners, said the two are strong contenders this year. 

Zarif and Mogherini were the most senior negotiators in a lengthy diplomatic process, which saw the signing in 2015 of the landmark deal between Tehran and six world powers.
