Larijani: Using false name for Persian Gulf is ‘childish’

May 15, 2016

TEHRAN – The Majlis speaker has deplored efforts by certain Western and regional countries to misname the Persian Gulf, Fars reported.

“Some are trying to eliminate the word Persian from the Persian Gulf; this is a childish act and they should admit that the Iranian nation has a glorious civilization,” Ali Larijani said, addressing the closing ceremony of the 29th International Tehran Book Fair on Saturday.
