Why did Raeisi pick Amir-Abdollahian as new Iran FM?

A review of the competence and plans of the proposed ministers of Iranian President Sayyid Ebrahim Raisi began on Saturday, August 21, 2021 in the Iranian Parliament (Islamic Consultative Assembly).

Given Iran’s current situation in the regional and international arena, undoubtedly one of the most important government positions is the post of The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, which many experts and foreign countries are also looking forward to appointing its minister.

The world, especially Western countries, is waiting for the specific policy of the Raisi government to be unveiled in light of the cessation of nuclear negotiations in Vienna and the necessity of determining the JCPOA assignment.

Although general strategies in the field of foreign policy in Iran are determined by upstream institutions, especially the Supreme National Security Council, and ministers are the sole implementers of these strategies and policies, the minister’s view of this position is certainly effective in how these policies are implemented.

Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, Special Assistant to the Speaker for International Affairs and former Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab-African Affairs, is the nominee of Sayyid Ebrahim Raisi to head the diplomatic corps of the 13th Government of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
