IFRC Pres terms Iran Red Cross as powerful

Tehran, May 8, IRNA – President of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) Francesco Rocca said that after a century-long activity across the world, the Iranian Red Crescent Society (IRCS) is among the most national powerful ones. Rocca made the remarks at a ceremony held in Tehran on Sunday to mark the 100th anniversary of establishment of Iranian Red Crescent Society. As he noted, IRCS is among the most reputable ones in the IFRC network. IFRC is proud of existence and activities of Iranian Red Crescent Society, he underlined. He further highlighted respectable foothold Iran has in the international humanitarian bodies. Then, he appreciated Pirhossein Kolivand, the president of IRCS, for his humanitarian activities done to help the needy. In crises, Red Crescent Societies are those in which the governments can trust, Rocca stressed.
