Supreme Leader Declares 'Year of Economic Jihad'

Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei extended his congratulatory message in the early hours of the Persian calendar year of 1390.

"I felicitate this auspicious celebration especially to the families of the martyrs and war disabled veterans," the Leader said.

The Leader lauded the country's accomplishments during the previous year and wished all the Iranians around the globe a year of health and prosperity.

Ayatollah Khamenei also called for all-out jihad-like efforts by the Iranian nation and officials in order to pave the grounds for a decade of economic growth.

The Leader touched upon the tragic incidents in Bahrain, Yemen and Libya, and expressed sympathy with their nations, saying that the Islamic awakening in the Muslim world is the harbinger of justice in the region.

The Supreme Leader also praised the government's subsidy reform plan and regarded it as the country's most important achievement in the previous year, noting that the plan expedited Iran's economic development.

Nowruz is an ancestral festivity marking the first day of spring and the renewal of nature. It promotes values of peace and solidarity between generations and within families as well as reconciliation and neighborliness, thus contributing to cultural diversity and friendship among people and different communities.

Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani also sent a message of congratulations to a number of his counterparts in the region on the occasion of Nowruz or the Persian day of rebirth.

In his separate messages to his counterparts from Afghanistan, Armenia, Georgia, India, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Pkistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Turkey and Uzbekistan, Larijani noted that "Nowruz is the legacy of all of us."

"This year, we are commemorating Nowruz under conditions that the awakening of the regional nations gives the glad tiding of a bright and promising future."

In Iran and many other countries people welcome spring with the ancient Nowruz (new day) celebrations which coincides with the astronomical Vernal Equinox Day or the first day of spring.
