Iran, Slovakia stress cultural cooperation

Iran's Culture Minister Reza Salehi-Amiri and his Slovak counterpart Marek Maďariĉ underscored the need for cultural and artistic cooperation between the two countries.

In a meeting on Saturday, the two ministers signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on cooperation in the fields of cinema, book and visual arts, IRNA reported.

Speaking at the signing ceremony, Salehi-Amiri said that the Slovakian minister's visit to Iran is a prelude for strengthening bilateral political, economic and cultural ties.

The MoU includes articles on holding cultural weeks, active presence in book and art exhibitions as well as cooperation in the fields of cinema and cultural diplomacy.

"Slovakia was the first country to sign an MoU with Iran after the implementation of the nuclear deal also known as Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA)," he recalled.

Slovak culture minister, for his part, voiced his country's interest in benefitting from Iran's experiences in different areas.
