Mr. Divsalar, referring to Islamic Revolution said contrary to many revolutions, Iranian Revolution advocated freedom, justice and religious values while other revolutions were mostly concerned with economic issues.
Talking about the role of media in fanning Iran-phobia, he said despite all progress made by Iran since the Revolution, some media by disregarding their professional ethics, publish unfounded and distorted information about Iran.
Underlining Iran’s unrivaled history and civilization, Divsalar said we are always in favor of peace and tranquility across the world and against violence and extremism.
The Japanese clergy, Savada, for his turn said before the Revolution, Iran was ruled by a despotic monarch and was under the influence of foreign powers and US in particular that imposed the legal regime of Capitulation but finally the Revolution inspired by hatred towards meddling foreign powers, succeeded.
