Iran’s cabinet renews allegiance with I.R. founder

IRNA – Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and his cabinet members Saturday renewed allegiance with late Imam Khomeini, the founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

On the second day of Iran’s Government Week, President Rouhani and the cabinet visited Imam Khomeini’s shrine to pay tribute to the late founder of the Islamic Revolution in Iran.

The Iranian President was also accompanied by Imam Khomeini’s grandson, Hassan Khomeini.

President Rouhani and the cabinet then visited the tombs of the former Iranian President Mohammad Ali Rajaei and his Prime Minister Mohammad Javad Bahonar, who were killed in a bombing at the Prime Minister Office on August 30, 1981. The terrorist group of Mojahedin Khalq Organization (MKO) was blamed for the bombing.

Every year, a week around the date, is dubbed after the government in Iran, and the martyrs are commemorated.
