The message of representative of chemical warfare survivors on the occasion of International Day of Peace
I also have a special hello to the victims of war and survivors of chemical weapons. On the verge of the “Week of Holly Defense”, I pay tribute to the martyrs of Iran-Iraq war as well.
We are here to commemorate 21st of September, the International Day of Peace and today, we are even more happy that this event is held by the assistance of victims of chemical weapons who are now the leaders and messengers of peace.
Again, this year we commemorate International Peace Day while in many parts of the world including Yemen, Iraq and Syria and many other countries people are deprived from the blessings of peace and security and we witness the tragic humanitarian disasters caused by the greed of individuals and groups; Today not many parts of the world are safe from such disasters and peace is a vulnerable concept of this century considering that.
