Tokyo (IP) - Cultural Attache Office of the Iranian embassy in Japan, held a specialized and virtual meeting on ‘Aggression of Saddam Regime's and Iranian People's Resistance' in Tokyo, on the occasion of the anniversary of the Ba’athist’s regime 8-year war on Iran.

Iran PressAsia: Iran’s Cultural Attache at the Iranian embassy in Japan Hossein Divsalar, said in a news conference on Saturday that the former Iraqi dictator, Saddam Hossein, imposed eight years of war on the Iranian nation, and a large number of civilians, including children, adolescents, men, and women, in addition to the military, were martyred in the unequal war.

Divsalar pointed out that the oppressed people of Iran defended their country with the least equipment, and not a single inch of Iranian territory was given to the enemy.

Noting that for the first time in history, it was Saddam who committed a stated chemical attack on another country, Divsalar stressed that Iran has never started any war and has tried to maintain sustainable peace and security. 

A Japanese Islamologist and deputy of Al-Mustafa University branch in Japan Hojjatoleslam Ebrahim Sawada said that Saddam imposed war on Iran after the victory of the Islamic Revolution and intended to occupy Iran within a week, but the Iranian people, without proper equipment, resisted the Ba'athist regime backed by Arab and European countries.

Shizoku Tsuya, the president of ‘Japanese Most’ NGO which plays a key role in introducing the tragedy of Saddam's chemical attack to the world, said that unlike the world-famous nuclear attack on Hiroshima, Saddam’s chemical attacks on Sardasht, west of Iran, have not been reported in its true sense.
