Political independence, main achievement of Islamic Revolution: Iran envoy
Algiers, The main achievements of the 1979 Islamic Revolution in Iran were political independence and the opportunity created for people to decide for their fate, Iran's top diplomat here said.
Despite four-decade threats and plots against the country, Iran is moving towards stability, tranquility and progress, Reza Ameri, Iran's ambassador to Algeria said at a ceremony held Sunday in commemoration of the 39th anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution.
Iran's Islamic Revolution was after freedom, independence and social justice, Ameri said at the ceremony in which two members of Algerian cabinet, a number of politicians, media members, economic officials and parliamentarians took part.
Iran, despite the enemies' plots, has been trying to establish cordial relations with all global countries based on mutual respect and noninterference in the internal affairs of other states, the diplomat said.
About the July 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and the world powers, the ambassador said the deal was an indication of Tehran's 'correct interaction' with the world.
About the issues related to the World of Islam, the diplomat said the 'Zionist regime is the number one enemy of the Islamic Ummah.'
On the cause of Palestine, Ameri said freedom of Palestine from the Zionists' occupation should be the Muslims' top priority.
Touching upon bilateral ties between Iran and Algeria, the diplomat also said the two countries' cooperation is a good example of successful relations that can exist between the nations.
During the past three years, the trade exchange between Tehran and Algiers has quadrupled, Ameri said.
