It is nice to hear him saying it in Farsi "eyd e shoma mobarak". and although I admire him for doing so, but I wish this would have happened in a different way!

I wish he had mentioned the politics a bit more implicit and focused more on Iranian culture instead. Noerooz, although is a great opportunity for him or anybody to convay a message but it is more about celebrations and in fact celebrating a great culturral inheritance that has been safe gaurdaed to this day and travelled through centuries of war and uncertainties. Noerooz is about life and renewing resolutions and promises and hopes for a new year to come, and at last and not least it is about "love" between family and people and finally peace.

I say, Mr. president you did good but I wish your message was less emphesised on politics and more on what Noerooz really means to Iranians, that way your message could have actually been better and more influential than this(since it sounded more like last year).

I think you should have told them more about what you know about their culture and what you have learned and send condolances to the families that lost their love ones during the protest times.
