TEHRAN – Iran’s Foreign Ministry has named Bahram Qassemi as Tehran’s new ambassador to France.

The official website of the ministry reported on Friday that Qassemi, a former envoy to Spain and Italy who in recent years has acted as Foreign Ministry spokesman, has been given the mission to serve as Iran’s top diplomat in Paris.

Qassemi has been serving as spokesman and head of the Foreign Ministry’s Public and Media Diplomacy Center since mid-2016.

In the other way round, Philippe Thiebaud, a former French envoy to Pakistan who once represented France at the UN atomic watchdog, was appointed this week as the new French ambassador to Iran.
