Kharazi started his career in 1983 during the Iran–Iraq War in the High Defence Council and the IRIB. He subsequently became Iran’s ambassador to the United Nations in 1989 and after a period of six years he returned to Iran as Deputy Foreign Minister for Research. He became Iran’s Ambassador to France in 2002 until 2006 when Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was elected into office. Kharazi was the chairman of the 1997 Tehran OIC Summit. He was also a key figure in the two-year nuclear negotiations with the EU trio.
