“One of duties of Iranian ambassadors is that they should help foreign nations get acquainted with the real face of Iran and get a positive sense toward the Islamic Republic of Iran,” he added.
The speaker also noted that the the Islamic Revolution of Iran appreciates reality and envisages prosperous future, which is in line with the current circumstances and situation of the world.
