Baird and Obama mark Nowruz, send message to Iranians

- March 20th, 2012

Iranians are celebrating Nowruz, the Iranian New Year.

U.S. President Barack Obama made a video message to mark the day – reportedly his fourth. But Obama also sends a message to the people of Iran – that its regime should lift the “electronic curtain” around Iran.

This year, Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird followed in Obama’s footsteps and filmed his own message. He went beyond wishing Iranians the best on Nowruz, and like Obama, spoke directly to the Iranian people and condemned their regime.

Still, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei didn’t appear impressed
