By Milad Fashtami - Trend:

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif expressed his condolences over the death of prominent scholar of Iranian and Central Asian Studies, Richard Frye, Iranian ILNA News Agency reported on March 29.

"I was deeply saddened by the news of Richard Frye's passing. He was a true friend and a great scholar of Iranian studies," Zarif tweeted.

Zarif went on to note that Frye's legacy will remain intact forever.

Richard Nelson Frye was an American scholar of Iranian and Central Asian Studies, and Aga Khan Professor Emeritus of Iranian Studies at Harvard University. He died on March 27 at the age of 94.

His professional areas of interest were Iranian philology and the history of Iran and Central Asia before 1000 CE.

Frye was a popular public speaker at numerous Iran-related gatherings. In 2005, he spoke at UCLA, encouraging the Iranians present to cherish their culture and identity.

In 2004, he spoke at an architectural conference in Tehran, expressing his dismay at hasty modernization that ignores the beauties of traditional Iranian architectural styles.
