BIOGRAPHY

Ali Hoseini-Khamenei was bornon 17 July 1939 in Tehran, Iran, Iran, is Grand Ayatollah, Iran. Ali Hoseini-Khamenei is #18 in Most Powerful People In The World. As Iran's Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei begrudgingly approved a nuclear agreement between his country and seven world powers in April 2015. Pressured by a crippled domestic economy caused by coordinated international sanctions and a weak oil market, he agreed to limit his nation's nuclear ability in exchange for relief from the sanctions; Tehran has since begun decommissioning centrifuges used for enriching uranium. Since first assuming power in 1989, Khamenei has worked to establish Iran as a world player in the nuclear field, and has maintained fierce antipathy towards the United States." He reaffirmed that position following Donald Trump's election in November 2016, saying that America has "always been an evil to the Iranian nation."
