The acting head of the Iranian Oil Ministry Gholam Hossein Nozari has assigned Ali Kordan as his deputy, the Fars News Agency reports on its Web site Thursday.
Kordan is reported to have turned down a similar offer last year by the former Iranian Oil Minister Kazem Vaziri Hamaneh.
Kordan has previously served as deputy labor minister, president of Iran's Technical and Vocational Organization, deputy head of the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting, or IRIB, for provincial and parliamentary affairs, deputy head of IRIB for administrative and financial affairs, and deputy minister for culture and Islamic guidance for administrative and financial affairs.
