Copy of Cyrus Cylinder presented to Brazil human rights min

Tehran, IRNA – Iran's Ambassador in Brasilia Hossein Qaribi in a meeting presented a copy of Persian Cyrus Cylinder - world's first charter of human rights - to Brazil's Minister of Women, Family, and Human Rights Damares Alves.

The copy of the Cyrus Cylinder had been translated into Portuguese, the native language of the majority of Brazilians, IRNA reported on Tuesday.

In the meeting, the Iranian ambassador elaborated on Iran's achievements in preparing the ground for preserving human rights and status of women and family in the Iranian society.

Qaribi also talked of various services, such as the right to study given to the Afghan refugees in Iran, including girls and children.

Progress in human rights will be seen through international cooperation and exchange of experiences, the ambassador noted.

Expressing Iran's readiness to hold talks on the human rights, he stressed that improvement in the human rights should not be used as a political tool.

The Brazilian minister, in the meeting, gave a report on activities done by her government in the area of the human rights for indigenous people and tribes.

According to her, indigenous people including children and women who live in over 300 villages need support.

As she noted, her government has taken broad measures towards the issue.

At the end, she expressed her eagerness to Iran's culture and civilization.

When Cyrus the Great, King of Persia and founder of the Achaemenid Empire, entered the land of Babylon in 539 BC as a conqueror, he treated people in a way different from that of the ordinary conquerors of that time. He never violated their dignity and human rights and this has turned that day into a historic day for humanity.

Upon his entry to Babylon, Cyrus adopted a different approach in treating the people living in the new captured lands, allowing them, instead, to hold on to their religious and ethnic values and live a free life.

The approach taken by the Iranian king has happened to go down in history to make him the harbinger of human rights.
