TEHRAN -- Iran’s former minister of roads and urban development, Rostam Qassemi, passed away on Thursday at the age of 58 after “suffering a period of illness.”
President Ebrahim Raisi late in November accepted Qassemi’s resignation following the deterioration of the latter’s health conditions some two months earlier. He was the former commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC)’s Khatam al-Anbiya Construction Headquarters. Qassemi was also a former minister of petroleum in Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s administration.
