Tehran, Dec 19, IRNA - Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Tuesday urged ministers, vice presidents and government officials to submit the report on their implementation of the Citizen Rights Charter.

Addressing a gathering on the first anniversary of the charter, President Rouhani also demanded government officials to publicize their upcoming plan for upholding citizens’ rights.
