Bangladeshi minister interested in Iran's culture

Bangladeshi Culture Minister Asaduzzaman Noor in a meeting with Iran's Cultural Attaché in Dhaka Mousa Hosseini expressed his keen interest in Iran's civilization and culture.

They also exchanged views on implementing cultural programs signed by the two countries during Noor's recent trip to Tehran and expanding cultural ties, IRNA reported.

Iran's ambassador to Bangladesh Abbas Vaezi also attended the meeting.

Noor further expressed the willingness of Bangladeshi artists to attend Marivan Street Theater Festival and Fajr International Theater Festival which will be held in October and February, respectively.

Referring to his recent trip to Shiraz, southern Iran, Noor said, "I visited a painting gallery in Shiraz and asked the gallery's authorities to hold an exhibition of the paintings in Dhaka."

The minister who attended the 28th Tehran International Book Fair in May, praised the high quality of the exhibition and hoped that Bangladesh would participate more extensively in the next edition of the event.

Since Islamic Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (ISESCO) selected Mashhad as the cultural capital of the Islamic world in 2017 and Dhaka held the title in 2012, Vaezi asked Bangladeshi officials to share their experience with Iran in organizing programs in this regard.

Hosseini told Noor that Iran's Cultural Center in Bangladesh intends to hold Iran's film week in Dhaka by the end of 2016.

Noor also proposed the presentation of Bengali translations of Persian books in the country.
