Biography

Manouchehr Mottaki
The former Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki was an MP in the Islamic Republic of Iran’s first parliament. He later served in high-ranking positions in the Foreign Ministry, including heading the Iran’s embassies in Turkey and Japan.

Mottaki was Iran’s Foreign Minister for five years under president Ahmadinejad. The president dismissed Mottaki in December 2010, while the minister was on an official visit to Senegal.

“I will propose a plan in line with Supreme Leader’s beliefs and the people’s demands so that in a government with the name of the Islamic Republic, the president would be more than a sympathizer for the people and give something more than a future promise,” Mottaki said on his website in a message to Iranians announcing his candidacy.

Mottaki is viewed as an ally of parliament speaker Ali Larijani, a conservative who lost to Ahmadinejad in the 2005 election and has since kept up an intense rivalry with him.

In a sign that Mottaki may not agree with the Supreme Leader on everything, a note on his website last month criticized “crude” suggestions set out by Iran’s nuclear negotiators.

Mottaki was born in 1953 in Bander-e-Gaz in Iran’s northern province of Golestan. He studied Social Science in India and returned to Iran after 1978 revolution, when he joined a revolutionary students’ committee in Tehran. He holds a MA degree from University of Tehran in International affairs.

Davos, Switzerland
2008 World Economic Forum Annual Meeting

The World Economic Forum Annual Meeting 2008 convened in Davos at a time of great anxiety in the world. The turmoil in the financial markets and the continuing conflict in the Middle East were naturally of immediate concern. Mounting awareness of the epochal challenge of climate change and the looming threat of global terrorism, two issues that were addressed in the opening plenary session, heightened our shared sense of urgency. The Annual Meeting theme - The Power of Collaborative Innovation - was a fitting focus for two reasons. First, it highlighted that a multistakeholder approach is critical for any authentic and viable solutions to global problems. And second, it served to underline the need for new and imaginative ways to mitigate global risks and the importance of achieving tangible results or value.
