The political literature of Sa’adi Shirazi is based on courage and freedom-seeking which makes Iranian poet a domineering figure on basic principles of diplomacy in the modern political world.

Sa’adi can undoubtedly be named as the greatest diplomat in all eras whose fame will remain in the history thanks to its moral foundations and applied philosophy
