Rouhani in Nowruz Message: World Needs Peace
Local Editor

"The world, today more than any time, needs a hope which values affection, love and intimacy and invites countries to interaction instead of confrontation," Iran's President Sheikh Hassan Rouhani said on Monday in the Nowruz message released by his office.

Rouhani in Nowruz Message: World Needs Peace

The message was separately sent to the leaders of Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Pakistan, Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan, Armenia, Turkey, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, India and Uzbekistan, his office said.

The countries are about to usher in Nowruz on Monday to the much-anticipated accompaniment of fireworks. Iran usually rings in the New Year with a televised message by Leader of the Islamic Revolution His Eminence Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei.

"Nations by resorting to hope, peace and tranquility can interact with each other under the light of unity and confront the ugly and obscene image arising from misinterpretation of religion, the result of which is terrorism and sectarian extremism," Rouhani said.

"Nowruz is the most beautiful celebration of nature which, with the transition of winter to spring, brings hope and lush as a gift," Rouhani said.

"This festival is the symbol of moderation, peace, warmth, light, abundance and freshness that God the Almighty has bestowed to man - a moderation which is rooted in natural developments, religious beliefs and principles of the benevolent Islam," he added.

Nowruz, Iran's most important holiday, is rooted in ancient culture and marked by large family gatherings, gifts for children, vacations and spring cleaning, called 'house shaking' in Persian.
