Manouchehr Mottaki (Persian: منوچهر متکی ; born 12 May 1953) is an Iranian politican and diplomat. He was the Iranian Minister of Foreign Affairs. Whilst technically appointed by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, he is considered to be closer to more pragmatic conservative factions and during the 2005 presidential election, he was the campaign manager of Ali Larijani, the Muslim conservative candidate.
Mottaki was born in Bandar-e-gaz County and went to school there. Bandar-Gaz was considered an important city in the north with a national railroad and several infrastructures during the Reza Shah Pahlavi regime due to its position as a transit bridge to the north mainly to the former Soviet Union. After graduation, he joined the army and as national plan joined the public education program by that day which was conducted by the government. He went to Khorasan province and established a school in a poor village around Mashhad and taught there. After his service in the army, since he was interested in social and political issues, he decided to travel abroad both for experience and study. By that time many Iranians traveled to India, which was seen as a popular academic destination. So he traveled there for a few years before the Iranian Revolution.
Mottaki holds a master's degree in international relations from the University of Tehran and a bachelor's degree from Bangalore University in India.
