Iran names new OPEC governor

SHANA — Iran’s deputy minister of petroleum for international affairs, Amir-Hossein Zamani-Nia, has been accepted as the country’s new OPEC governor.

Zamani-Nia, who is replacing Hossein Kazempour-Ardebili who died last month, won OPEC’s agreement during a ministerial meeting on videoconference on Saturday.

OPEC ministers’ approval for the governor post is a legal custom. OPEC conferences do not assign any representative; rather they would confirm nominees designated by member states.
