2013 Navroz Readings: (II) Recognition of Nowruz at the UN General Assembly and the US Congress

The United Nations General Assembly on 23 February 2010 recognized 21 March as the International Day of Nowruz, a spring festival of Persian origin,  as it continued its sixty-fourth session.

A few weeks later in the same year, the US House of  Representatives approved a resolution recognizing that Nowruz embodies the tradition that each individual’s thinking, speaking, and  conduct should always be virtuous.  The resolution also expressed appreciation to Iranian Americans for their contributions  to society, and wishing Iranian Americans and the people of Iran a good new  year.
