Mideast needs true understanding of religion: Iran president

Tehran, Jan 14, IRNA – Terrorists and their backers who stirred up unrest and caused trouble in the Middle East region have no true understanding of religion and social sciences, Iranian President said here on Sunday.

'If a society is ruled by good governance, it will move towards the right direction,' President Hassan Rouhani said at the closing ceremony on the 9th Farabi International Award on the Humanities and Islamic Studies underway in the Iranian capital.

'Development will not occur, unless a society gains achievements in the Islamic and human sciences,' President Rouhani said in his speech.

Farabi International Festival has been held annually for a decade in Iran in the area of human sciences.

Some 499 international articles were sent to the festival's secretariat this year.

Managing Director of the Islamic Republic News Agency Zia Hashemi is also present in the scientific event.

This news will be updated.
