The United States President, Joe Biden, has joined Iranians to celebrate Nowruz.

While marking the Iranian New Year on Saturday March 20, 2021, Biden said, “Spring is an eternal symbol of renewal and rebirth, with light and hope filling the hearts of people from the United States to Iran, Central Asia, the Caucuses, the Middle East, and Europe.”

“That is the message and the joy of Nowruz that we are honoring with a Haft-Sin table in the White House.

“This year, perhaps more than ever, that message is badly needed. After all our pain and loss, we are reminded that better days lie ahead and that we all must work together to achieve a shared future of greater peace, prosperity, and understanding,” he added.

Biden said, “As we continue to make progress against COVID-19, I hope that soon our virtual celebrations will return to the joy and community we feel gathering together with family and friends.”

Nowruz is the Iranian New Year, also known as the Persian New Year, which begins on the Spring equinox, marking the first day of Farvardin, the first month of the Iranian solar calendar.

It is celebrated worldwide by various ethno-linguistic groups, and falls on or around March 21 of the Gregorian calendar.
