Iranian Foreign Minister joins campaign of “present books instead of flowers”

Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif joined a campaign on trend in Iran encouraging people to "present books instead of flowers".

The campaign honors the memory of the young Iranian journalist and author Mohammad Reza Rostami who lost his life to cancer recently.

Zarif presented 100 volumes of the foreign ministry publications to the family of the late journalist as a token of his respect to him.

He said he joined the campaign because he believed it was a valuable cultural movement and hoped for its development into an all-inclusive movement nationwide as an honorable act.
