Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani has planted an olive sapling at the onset of the National Week of Natural Resources as a sign of peace.
In a ceremony to mark the Arbour Day on March 6, Larijani planted the olive sapling as a symbol of peace and solidarity with the Palestinian people.
According to a Farsi report by ICANA, ambassadors of foreign countries, including Palestine, Syria, Australia, Algeria, Libya, Greece and Armenia, attended the ceremony.
Here are the photos of the ceremony retrieved from ICANA:
Earlier in the day, Leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Khamenei and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani also planted some saplings to mark the day.
Every year, just before the Iranian New Year, millions of Iranians plant trees to mark the Natural Resources Week and hail the arrival of spring.
