Foreign envoys visit Iran's Sacred Defense expo

Several foreign ambassadors and cultural attachés paid a visit to Iran’s National Exhibition of the Holy Defense and Resistance Achievements.

As reported, ambassadors and officials from Portugal, Bangladesh, Italy, Kenya, Yemen, Chile, and Mexico paid a visit to the expo, Mehr News Agency reported.

The cultural attaché of Chile, ambassadors of Portugal and Bangladesh, charge d’affaires of Mexico and Croatia, ambassador of Yemen, the cultural counselor of Kenya, ambassador of Italy, and first commercial secretary of the Italian Embassy were among the visitors.

Tehran has been hosting the National Exhibition of the Holy Defense Achievements from September 23 to 30 at the Islamic Revolution & Holy Defense Museum.

The event coincided with annual ceremonies to mark the anniversary of the beginning of the eight-year war that was imposed on the country by Iraq’s dictator Saddam Hussein in late September 1980.

September 21 this year was the beginning of Sacred Defense Week, when Iranians hold week-long ceremonies, including military parades and putting on display the latest achievements of the country’s defense industry to honor the fallen soldiers and cherish the strength and resistance of the people during the eight-year war, which was eventually brought to an end through an UN-brokered cease-fire.

This year, Iran canceled the military parade due to the coronavirus pandemic.
