Spanish university to set up Iranian studies chamber

Spanish University of Salamanca signed an agreement with Iran to establish a permanent seminar of Iranian studies.

The document was signed by Iran's Cultural Attaché in Spain Alireza Esmaeili and the university's Vice Chancellor Efrem Yildiz, IRNA reported.

The signing ceremony was also attended by the dean of Linguistics Faculty, the university's instructor of Persian language Nazia Barani, who was assigned as the head of the Iranian Studies Chamber.

Based on the agreement, the chamber was established to promote academic activities and research on Iran as well as create a website to introduce Iran to the Spanish people.

University of Salamanca is the oldest university in the Hispanic world and the third oldest university in the world which is still in operation.

Concurrent with signing the agreement, Iran's Cultural Office presented 200 volumes of books on Persian language and literature, history and culture to help launch the entity in the university.


Iranian picked as juror

During the meeting, Esmaeili was selected as the juror of the International Award of Peace and Cooperation Foundation.

Peace and Cooperation Foundation has a global mission. Since its nomination in 1986 as Peace Messenger by the United Nations, this foundation has been presenting its school campaigns at the UN Headquarters in New York and holding press conferences with the support of the Spain's Permanent Mission.

The foundation is in close contact with non-profitable institutes affiliated to the UN. It invited a number of international cultural activists in Spain on its founding anniversary to pick members of the International Painting Contest, which was held in three age brackets under-six, six to 12, 12 to 18 under the title of 'Peace Galaxy: Space, Joint Legacy of Humanity'.
