Top Assyrian official congratulates Iran Leader on Eid al-Adha

Tehran, Aug 31, IRNA – Secretary General of Assyrian Universal Alliance Yonathan Betkolia in a message on Thursday congratulated Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei on Eid al-Adha on Sept 1.

Eid al-Adha is a day of reminding human's devotion to God, Betkolia wrote in his message to Ayatollah Khamenei.

The Assyrian community, as he said, has always been friend and supporter to all people in 'our country.'

Betkolia, who is also Representative of the Assyrians in Iran's Majlis (Parliament), at the end of his message wished prosperity and success for the great Iranian nation and the Leader as well.

Eid-al-Adha is Muslims' feast of sacrifice and worshipping. In such a day, Hazrat Ibrahim was to sacrifice his son as token of obedience to the God's command.
