The Secretary of the Council of the Cultural Revolution in Iran, Saeed Reza Ameli, said today, Monday, September 13 (September 13), that the Iranian President, Ebrahim Raisi, had ordered the implementation of the council’s decision “to cancel the implementation of the 2030 Document” of UNESCO.
He added that “29 decisions” of the Council of the Cultural Revolution were not reported in previous years, due to “legal defects”, “violations of the relevant executive body”, or “unknown reasons” with the previous government, while Ibrahim Raisi reported “7 decisions”. for implementation and the rest is under review.
Reda Ameli expected the new government to inform more than “90 percent” of decisions that “have not been decided” in the Council of the Cultural Revolution.
It is noteworthy that the Iranian President, Ibrahim Raisi, chairs the Council of the Cultural Revolution.
The UNESCO 2030 document, which was canceled in Iran on Monday, deals with environmental education, gender equality, equal social opportunities for women and men, human rights, eliminating discrimination against minorities, respecting cultural diversity, promoting intercultural education, and moving away from intolerant discourse. And educating the new generation with the vision of a global citizen and a culture of peace and non-violence.
In a speech on May 1, 2017, the Iranian Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei, opposed this UNESCO document, claiming that it promotes a “flawed, destructive and corrupt Western way of life.”
He also claimed on 1 September that the “enemy” tried to “infiltrate” Iranian education through the ” 2030 Document”.
Saeed Bayondi, an educational sociologist, said in a press interview last November that one of the reasons for the Iranian leader’s opposition to the document is that “this document criticizes countries that use children in military operations, provide them with military training, and involve them in military matters in any way. “.
He said, “Iran is one of the regimes to which UNESCO addressed its letter, a regime that did so on a large scale in the distant past, and during these years it tried to maintain a military atmosphere in Iranian schools, especially in secondary schools. This is a policy that completely contradicts the International Covenant on the Rights of the Child. “.
It is noteworthy that the 2030 document is the result of the meeting of leaders of various countries of the world, representatives of United Nations agencies and civil society activists in September 2015, which includes 17 main goals and 169 special goals that define the international community’s roadmap for sustainable development until 2030.
It was decided to start implementing this document in countries from January 2016. Khamenei was the first leader to react negatively to the document, asking professors to “explain it.”
He said, “There are hands behind the United Nations that establish a system of thought for everything in the peoples of the world. This is wrong and flawed. They have no right to comment on the traditions of countries.”
Bahram Qassemi, the then-Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman, said on May 17, 2017, that “Iran’s principled and unchangeable position is not to implement parts of the 2030 document that contradict the laws, religious beliefs, national priorities and moral values of Iranian society.”
In the same year, the Iranian Ministry of Science described the document as “merely a statement.” It “does not fall under the category of treaties and is not binding, and states can implement them according to their national structure,” she said.
Finally, on July 11, 2017, Hassan Rouhani’s government rescinded all decisions to follow up on the 2030 document, but the fundamentalists claimed that the government was secretly implementing this document.
