The Revolutionary Guards commander who has been nominated by Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to be the new oil minister is a suitable choice, given his “strategic” outlook on the energy industry, Press TV reported, citing the head of the parliament’s energy committee.

Rostam Qasemi is a “practical person” and “his views on oil and gas are strategic,” said Hamid-Reza Katouzian, who heads the committee, according to the state-run news channel’s website. “He is aware of problems in the oil and gas sectors and has solutions for them.”

Qasemi heads the Khatam al-Anbiya Construction Headquarters, the engineering arm of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. He said last week that he will put development of oil and gas fields shared by Iran with other nations at the top of his agenda if he receives a confidence vote from the parliament.
