Iran Appoints Sunni Woman as Ambassador

The Iranian government has appointed Homeira Rigi, the governor of Qasr-e Qand in southeastern Iran, as its next Ambassador to Brunei in eastern Asia.

Rigi is the second woman to serve as an ambassador, following Marzieh Afkham, who is currently serving as Iran’s ambassador to Malaysia.

Forouzandeh Vadiati will also start her work as Iran’s ambassador to Finland as the country’s third female ambassador.

Afkham is a career diplomat and Vadiati has served as the Foreign Ministry’s director-general for human rights and women affairs.

Rigi was the first Sunni female governor in Iran.
