Tehran, Dec 12, IRNA – Head of the Presidential Office Mohammad Nahavandian on Thursday singed the memorial book of the late former South African President Nelson Mandela at South African Embassy.
He extended the condolence of Iranian government to South African Ambassador to Tehran Archie Whitehead on the sad demise of Mandela.
Mandela is hero of peace and forgiveness and a model for the revolutionary leaders who toppled dictatorial regimes.
After he became president of South Africa, he pardoned security officers and justice officials of the apartheid regime for detaining him for 27 years.
He said that he forgave, but, never forgets the crimes the Apartheid regime perpetrated in South Africa.
