Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, Leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolution, has planted two saplings on the Arbour Day and the beginning of the National Week of Natural Resources.
The Leader planted two fruit saplings on Tuesday morning in a move to mark the Arbour Day and National Week of Natural Resources.
Ayatollah Khamenei, in a rare move, planted the saplings using disposable gloves as a precaution against the spread of the novel coronavirus in the country.

This day is also the beginning of the National Week of Natural Resources. The first day of this week is dedicated to planting saplings.
