Iran Congratulates Chile's Successful Rescue Attempt


Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman, Ramin Mihmanparast, congratulated the Chilean government's efforts to save the lives of 33 trapped miners held underground for more than sixty day.

October 13, 2010 (Hamsayeh.Net) - Chile’s epic rescue attempt to pull out 33 trapped miners finally took off early this morning with successful rescue of the first miner to freedom. So far nearly half of all the miners have been rescued. Chilean technicians are busy readjusting the complex pulley system that powers an elevator like shaft over 600 meters below ground.

Today, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mihmanparast congratulated the Latin American nation for its successful undertaking that saved so many lives, IRNA reported. In a cabled wire sent to Santiago, the FM Spokesman hailed Chile’s efforts that finally succeeded in finding the best method of reaching the trapped miners.

Chilean President Sebastian Pinera, is spending most this time at the site of rescue mission. Thousands of people in Chile and across the world are jubilant as this could have been a tragedy turned into a joyous celebration. Bolivian President Evo Morales joined Pinera this morning to visit a rescued Bolivian miner who was trapped alongside his Chilean counterparts.

Following the incident nearly two and half months ago, the Chilean government imposed stricter mining regulations which should bring greater safety standards to people working in this major industry for the Latin American country. Chile processes some the world’s largest and richest copper mines. Mining industry comprises about 40 percent of Chile’s economy.
