Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has accepted the resignation of his economic advisor Masoud Nili, ISNA
news agency reported.
Nili is not attending meeting at the Money and Credit Council anymore, according to ISNA, while Ali Tayebnia is attending in his place.
Nili's resignation comes after the US announced imposing the second batch of sanctions on Iran earlier in November. According to reports, Nili recently had conflicts with the president's supervision advisor Mohammad Nobakht, which could be the reason behind the former's resignation.
