“Happy face” Zarif Listed among World’s 100 most Influential in 2015



The ‘Time’ magazine placed Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif among the 100 most influential people in the world in 2015.

The magazine released its list of the 100 Most Influential People 2015 on April 16, putting Iran’s Zarif among world’s most influential leaders.

The list was divided into 5 categories: Titans, Pioneers, Artists, Leaders and Icons. Each of these has a special cover and Univision’s Jorge Ramos is front and center as one of the top leaders.

Calling Zarif “Iran’s dealmaker”, the magazine said Zarif is the happy face of Iran’s revolution.

Other personalities that landed on the Leaders category are: Raúl Castro, Angela Merkel, Vladimir Putin, Elizabeth Warren, Haider Al-Abadi, King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama.

The magazine said Zarif helped end the Iran-Iraq War, free American hostages in Lebanon and broker a new Afghan government after the Taliban’s defeat.

“Now, as foreign minister, he’s the pivot in nuclear diplomacy. For 18 months, the world’s six major powers have courted him as they have no other foreign official. The goal is to formalize the blueprint of a nuclear deal by June 30,” it said.

“Educated at two American universities, Zarif is well qualified to reconcile the revolutionaries and the world. As Iran’s ambassador to the UN, he engaged many in Congress. In March, an Iranian poll picked Zarif as man of the year,” it added.

“After a deal, Zarif would be the natural go-to guy for broader détente with the world too.”

    Olá Alexandre,Este tipo de ficheiros podem ser detetados pelos antivirus como maliciosos, porque servem para mexer no sistema do aparelho. No entanto, ele só serve para mexer no sistema do android e não tem qualquer risco para o computador. Eu próprio fiz o root com o programa e não tive qualquer problema.

    平成16年10月1日に西郷町(æ—§)、布施村(æ—§)、都万村(æ—§)、五箇村(æ—§)の四町村合併により新生「隠岐の島町」として新たな歴史を力強く刻み始めました。It seems four villages have merged and the new town which has been formed from the four village was named as Okinosimamachi=Town of Oki island/Oki -island town.
