Minister stresses need for strengthening Persian language

In a message issued on the occasion of the National Day of Persian Poetry and Literature, Esmaeili said that Persian plays a major in unifying Iranians from different ethnic backgrounds.

Describing it as the common heritage of Persian speakers, the official said that preserving, strengthening, and expanding this civilization-creating language is a necessity and valuable measure to protect the independence of the Iranian nation.

The Persian language plays a key role in forming the individual and social identity of each Iranian, he underlined.

Poetry has always had a place in the life of every Iranian, he further noted.

Mohammad Hossein Behjat-Tabrizi better known by his pen-name Shahriar has a great place in Iran’s literature, he underscored.

His remarkable command of Azeri and Persian languages and his masterworks made him legendary, the minister further said to hail Shahriar.



Mount Damavand is the highest peak in Iran and the highest volcano in Asia.

Things to Know Before Trip
