Leader’s Letter Presents Noble View on Counter-Terrorism: Iran’s UN Envoy
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran's Ambassador to the United Nations Gholamali Khoshroo praised Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei’s recent letter to the Western youth, saying that the letter presents a “noble viewpoint” about combating terrorism.
Speaking in a meeting of UN General Assembly on “the culture of peace” in New York on Thursday, Khoshroo highlighted the Leader’s emphasis on the need to change the mentalities about Islam.
“The objective behind the letter is to present a noble viewpoint about the fight against terrorism from within the Islamic world to the young audience,” he noted.
The Iranian diplomat also pointed to the theme of the General Assembly session and said the peace that has been mentioned in the UN Charter has nothing to do with imposition or domination.
Ayatollah Khamenei’s second letter to the youth in the West was released on Sunday, November 29, following the recent terrorist attacks in Paris.
In the letter, the Leader underlined that it is only the “youth , who by learning lessons from today’s hardships, will be able to find new solutions for building the future, and block off-roads which have led the West to this current position.”
The Leader’s letter came against the backdrop of a renewed wave of attempts in the West to spread Islamophobia after a string of terrorist attacks claimed by Daesh (ISIL) shocked Paris on November 13.
