The Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has introduced on Saturday Sayyed Abbas Mousawi as its new spokesperson, replacing Bahram Qasemi.
Mousawi was previously in charge of the ministry’s public diplomacy and media center.
Mousawi was appointed by Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in place of Qasemi, who has been appointed as Iran’s ambassador to France.
Qasemi served as the foreign ministry’s spokesperson since July 2016.
