Hodjatoleslam Ali Akbar Nateq-Nouri (born 1944, city of Noor, Mazandaran province) was the Chairman of the Iranian parliament. Before that, he was the interior minister of the Islamic Republic. A.A. Nategh Nouri currently serves as an advisor to Iran's supreme leader and is a critic of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

He ran to become the president of Iran for the Iranian presidential election in 1997.[1][2]

Nateq-Nouri was at the center of an international dispute in 2009 after he referred to Bahrain as Iran's 14th province. Bahrain paused negotiations with Iran regarding gas imports in response, and the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) condemned the remarks.[3] The Iranian foreign minister immediately commented on the controversy and stated that Mr Nateq Nouri's remark about the history of Bahrain was misinterpreted by the media and that Iran respects Bahrain's sovereignty.[3][4] Nategh Nouri himself told Aljazeerah that his remarks about the history of the region was misunderstood and his comment is not relevant to today's Iran-Bahrain relationship, IRNA reported.[5] Bahrain was a part of Iran until it was recognized by Iran and the United Kingdom as a separate state after a referendum conducted by the United Nations in 1971.[4]
