Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has expressed his deep regret over the death of the former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan.
In a Sunday message on the demise of Kofi Annan, Zarif said his tenure at the UN was replete with initiatives and measures which will make his name everlasting in people’s minds across the world.
The Iranian top diplomat then referred to the political and professional carrier of the late ex-secretary general and described his term in office as one of the most brilliant eras of the UN.
According to Zarif, during his term, Annan made great strides in establishing international peace and security, strengthening multilateralism and paying serious attention to the situation of the southern states.
Zarif said such efforts won late Annan the Nobel Peace Prize in 2001.
