Tehran, Aug 24, IRNA – President Hassan Rouhani and his cabinet ministers paid tribute to Imam Khomeini, the late founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran on Saturday.

The president and cabinet ministers went to the mausoleum of Imam Khomeini in southern Tehran on the occasion of National Government Week which starts in Iran on August 24 each year.

They laid a wreath of flower at Imam Khomeini’s tomb.
