Leader Marks Natural Resources Week

Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei planted two tree saplings on Wednesday in a symbolic move to mark the Natural Resources Week (March 5-11).
During the event, Ayatollah Khamenei said, "Concerns surrounding plants, green spaces and protection of our natural environment are all very important issues for Iran. Officials, whose works are related to the protection of forests, pastures and agricultural lands, must pay special attention to their work [in these areas]," Leader.ir reported.
Referring to pastures and forests where various medicinal herbs grow and the unique forests of northern Iran, the Leader said, "The beautiful forests of northern Iran are among the most unique forests in the world. However, a few traders, neglecting national interests, have encroached upon the ecosystems of forests and national resources, destroying forests to build villas. Our forests should be protected from these encroachments."
He highlighted the quality of Iranian fruit, expressing regret over fruit imports, stressing that it is harmful and should be prevented.
Ayatollah Khamenei described the Natural Resources Week and the tree planting events as symbolic of the Iranian nation's respect for nature across their homeland.
"We should appreciate this divine blessing," he said.
