April 24, 2019

TEHRAN – Majid Takht Ravanchi, Iran’s new permanent representative to the United Nations, on Tuesday submitted his credentials to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.

Takht Ravanchi was named Iran’s permanent representative to the UN earlier this month, replacing Gholamali Khoshroo who retired in late 2018.

He has served as a top nuclear negotiator, deputy director for political affairs at the presidential office, and deputy foreign minister for European and American Affairs.

According to ISNA, Takht Ravanchi arrived in New York accompanying Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, who is attending a high-level plenary meeting of the United Nations General Assembly on multilateralism and diplomacy.
