Iran celebrates 33rd Anniversary of its National Day

 HE Mohammed Nabi Hassani Pour
"Iran is one of the strong, emerging powers in the region" - Ambassador Hassani Pour of Iran to Sri Lanka   



Dr  Srimal Fernando  South Asia Correspondent for Foreign Exchange - The Diplomatic Society engages H.E . Mohammed Nabi Hassani Pour, Ambassador of The Islamic Republic of Iran to Sri Lanka. He was joined by Mr Ali Akbar Baba Second Councillor to the Embassy. Relations with Sri Lanka and with other neighboring countries, Iranian history, advancement in science, trade and investment opportunities were the subjects highlighted.


I take immense pleasure in extending my heartfelt greetings on the occasion of the 33rd Anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution and National day of the Islamic Republic of Iran to the kind, friendly people of this beautiful island nation of Sri Lanka. It is noteworthy that this important event in our calendar closely coincides with the National Day of the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka.

Iran has a rich history which is over 2500 years old and is widely regarded as the cradle of world civilization. During its long history, Iran has had many kingdoms governing the country. It was during the Sasanian dynasty that the people of Iran embraced Islam.

With the leadership of Imam Khomeini and the tremendous resolve of the people, the problems were overcome and an economic growth of 6% to 8 % was registered. Iran became the first Muslim country to send satellites to space. In 2006, Iran achieved the distinction of producing the Middle East’s first cloned animal and Iranian scientists continue to make many contributions to global advancements in Science and technology.

Iran has attained progress in all areas of Science and technology, and our atomic energy programmes are intended purely for peaceful purposes.   Today, Iran is one of the strong, emerging powers in the region.  I wish to reiterate that according to Islamic principles, Iran cannot produce atomic weapons.

We strongly believe in living peacefully with our neighboring countries with love, friendship and mutual respect. There is an urgent need for dialogue and mature democratic behavior so that there will be goodwill and understanding. Our good relations with our neighbours numbering more than 12 are a testimony to our peaceful coexistence with all countries and the people of the world.

There are many opportunities particularly in the field of tea, oil, agriculture, tourism, science, technology, fisheries, shipping and aviation that we must continue to explore for mutual benefit and well-being.
