“Islamic Revolution” Seminar Planned in Ethiopia


January 20, 2015

The Iranian Cultural Center in Ethiopia plans to hold a seminar on the Islamic Revolution later this month.

Slated for January 31, the event will also feature Islamic Awakening in the sub-Saharan region.

A number of university scholars and Muslim and Christian figures will be present in the seminar, planned on the occasion of the victory anniversary of Iran’s 1979 Islamic Revolution.

Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir Abdollahian is expected to present a paper in the seminar.

Iranian Islamic Revolution’s victory, seen as the most important milestone in Iran’s recent history, liberated the country from the yoke of the hegemonic powers –with the ousted Shah as their stooge– and established a new political system based upon Islamic values and democracy.

The Iranian nation toppled the West-backed Pahlavi regime in February 1979, ending 2,500 years of monarchic rule in the country.
