Envoy: Germany seeks greater cultural ties with Iran

Germany is willing to deepen ties with Iran particularly in the cultural field, said the German Ambassador to Iran.

Michael Klor-Berchtold, in a meeting with Iran's Culture Minister Abbas Salehi, pointed to the long history of relations between the two countries in various fields, Mehr News Agency reported.

Iranians love German art and culture and most of German philosophy and culture have been practiced and followed in Iran, Salehi said, adding that the European country has been a good partner for Iran.

He pointed out that German literary figures such as Goethe, Hegel and Kant are held in high esteem in Iran, adding that there is need to sign a cultural MoU between the two states.

Klor-Berchtold hoped that Iranian museums would soon hold loan exhibitions in Germany, adding that German relics can simultaneously be displayed in Iran.

He criticized US decision to withdraw from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), saying that this should not have happened since this international agreement was a UN Security Council resolution.

Salehi said that Iran's current administration is determined to expand cultural relations with Germany more than before.

Inking a cultural MoU, he said, will lead to a better continuation of cultural cooperation.

Touching upon JCPOA, Salehi said that European countries, especially Germany, have been good partners in upholding the agreement, but more needs to be done to rebuild trust.
