TEHRAN – Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei planted a sapling on Tuesday.

The planting came on the occasion of the National Week of Natural Resources.
“All the people and officials must work hard as part of their duty to protect green environments, forests and rangelands,” he Leader noted.

He highlighted the importance of appreciating plants and trees as blessings to the life of mankind.

Destroying forests and gardens is an “imprudent” act which may lead to extinction of some species. “Hence it is everyone’s duty to preserve and protect green environments.”
