THE 36th Victory of the Islamic Revolution of Iran was commemorated yesterday at a special reception hosted by Ambassador of Iran to Brunei Darussalam, Abdolhamid Fekri at Rizqun International Hotel.
The guest of honour was Minister of Industry and Primary Resources, Pehin Orang Kaya Seri Utama Dato Seri Setia Awang Haji Yahya bin Begawan Mudim Dato Paduka Haji Bakar.
The evening commenced with the national anthems, followed by a live recitation of verses from the Al-Quran.
In his welcome speech, Abdolhamid Fekri said the relationship between Iran and Brunei would be enhanced, particularly as both are Islamic nations.
“Similarities in political, economical, historical, cultural and religious fields pave the way for the expansion of relations that have always been emphasised by the leaders of the two countries,” he said.
The ambassador then invited the guest of honour to a cake-cutting ceremony and presentation of a memento.
