TEHRAN - The rights of all Iranian ethnic groups would be guaranteed through the implementation of the 20-Year Outlook Plan, said Expediency Council Chairman Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani here on Monday.

It is a comprehensive development plan and puts Iranian calendar year 1404 (begins in March 2025) as its target year for completion.
He said the bravery and candidness are particular characteristics of Iranian Kurds.
He added the diligence of the Kurdish people coupled with natural resources would pave the grounds for the regional development.
“Kurds have proved their loyalty to the Islamic system during the eight-year sacred defense,” Rafsanjani said in a meeting with some members of the Kurdish United Front.
