In the cordial visit that took place late on Wednesday, Dr Rouhani said: All martyrs and veterans went to the fronts with their love of Ashura culture and marked enormous devotions and self-sacrifice in the Sacred Defence era.
The respectful families of martyrs are an exceptional model for the Iranian nation and they taught us the lesson of patience and devotion, he added.
Dr Rouhani continued: Fathers and mothers of the martyrs raised children who did not leave the late Imam [Khomeini] alone when the revolution, Islam and their country needed them.
He went on saying: Our country's youths' sacrifice and devotion is incomparable with anything in the world.
We are proud of martyrs, veterans and prisoners of war and their families and we hope to be able to follow their paths, and the causes of Imam [Khomeini] and the revolution, Rouhani added.
