Iran has appointed Reza Najafi as its new envoy to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

Najafi replaced Ali Asqar Soltaniyeh who served as Iran's permanent representative at the UN nuclear watchdog for nearly a decade.

Soltaniyeh’s mission will come to an end on September 1.

Najafi, a career diplomat, has served as deputy director-general of the foreign ministry’s political and international bureau and head of the ministry’s disarmament office.
