Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Seyed Abbas Mousavi congratulated the World Red Cross and Red Crescent Day in a message on his Twitter account on Friday.
“Neither the COVID-19 pandemic, nor the growing unilateralism, nor the chain of sanctions can sound the death knell for convergence and multilateralism,” he said.
“Cooperation has risen like a phoenix from the ashes of crisis,” the Iranian spokesman added.
“The World Red Cross and Red Crescent Day is reminiscent of pure models for the fight against the global threats,” Mousavi noted.
World Red Cross Red Crescent Day is celebrated on May 8 every year.
The day is the anniversary of the birth of Henry Dunant, who was born on May 8, 1828, and was the founder of International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and the first Nobel Peace Prize laureate.
