He made the statement in his message at the closing ceremony of the first edition of the National Poetry Festival of University Students, according to IRNA.

Undoubtedly, the university education period is one of the sweetest and most memorable in everyone’s life. On the other hand, Iranians are born with poetry, and our national art, that is, poetry has always been a good platform for expressing divine thoughts and feelings of the people of this land, he said.

“Our university students are characterized by valuable traits such as freedom of thought, idealism, justice-seeking, and religiosity, and throughout history, the great legacy of our Iranian-Islamic civilization has been known for its poetry,” Salehi added.
