Nowruz is a day for renewal. It is an opportunity to reflect on the intimate links between people and the natural world. It carries a strong message of peace and harmony between peoples of all cultures on the basis of mutual respect and understanding. It creates a cross-cultural linkage through which we can advocate for shared human values.
I would like to express my best wishes for the New Year and the advent of spring and Nowruz to the visitors of our site and all the peace-loving people around the world. On this International Day of Nowruz, I express hope that all people can use the occasion to reflect on the beauty of nature, the promise of spring and the power of culture to build peace.
