In the message that was sent on the International Day for Older Persons, he wrote: “Older persons inspire families and are the centre of affection and stronger kinship”.

“The issue of old population is a challenge and, at the same time, an opportunity for countries around the world and is posing the question of how much governments and societies are ready to face this phenomenon,” wrote Dr Rouhani in a message that was read out by Dr Ali Rabiee, the Ministry of Cooperatives, Labour, and Social Welfare.

He added: “Following the Iranian-Islamic tradition, the Iranian society has a special respect for the elderly”.

Stressing sustainable employment and correct policies for an efficient retirement system, he wrote: “This means that the future of our older persons is tied to the future of Iran’s economic development”.
