In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate.
Mr. Asghar Farhadi
Your valuable cinematic work, sir, which has enjoyed widespread approval of the good and wise Iranian audience and has now been recognized on an international scale and has become a source of pride for yourself and our dear country, is a sign of success for our noble and valuable cinema and the lofty cultural potention of the great Iranian nation and an expression of how genuine artistic productions are not limited by borders.
I hope that we will always witness the appearence of prominent works in all cultural, artistic, and scientific fields. Allow me to ask you, sir, and all your dear colleagues and the esteemed cinematographers and artists of Iran to never tire or or cease working.
Sayyed Mohammad Khatami
