Head of the Forum for Proximity of Islamic Schools of Thought, Ayatollah Akhtari will attend and address the conference.

A number of scholars and devotees of Imam Khomeini (RA) from Thailand will also be present at the conference.

It will be organized by the Iranian Cultural Center in Thailand, which also held a commemoration ceremony on Thursday.

Three new books will also be unveiled during the conference.

Rouhollah Mousavi Khomeini, better known as Imam Khomeini, was born in the central Iranian city of Khomein on September 24, 1902 to a family of scholars.

He led Iran’s 1979 Islamic Revolution, which culminated in the overthrow of the US-backed Mohammad Reza Pahlavi’s monarchy. Pahlavi was Iran’s last monarch.

Imam Khomeini passed away on June 4, 1989 at the age of 87.
