Tehran, Tbilisi to expand cultural ties

In a meeting between Iran’s cultural attaché in Tbilisi, Hamid Mostafavi, and the director of Giorgi Leonidze State Museum of Literature, Lasha Bakradze, they discussed the expansion of cultural and artistic cooperation.

During the meeting, both sides talked about holding photo exhibitions on Tehran-Tbilisi historic relations, IRNA reported.

Referring to the cultural and historic relations between Iran and Georgia, Mostafavi said the presence of various works and documents in museums, libraries, scientific and research centers of both countries paves the way for conducting further joint programs and holding scientific seminars as well as exhibitions.

Given the shared areas of interest between the Georgian museum and Iran’s Golestan Palace, Mostafavi suggested holding photo exhibitions to introduce historic relations between Iran and Georgia.

Bakradze, for his part, welcomed the proposal and voiced his readiness for maintaining joint cooperation, especially in holding the exhibition.

He also expressed hope for both countries to continue friendly ties in the future.

The museum was founded in 1930 upon the initiative of David Arsenishvili, a legendary museum-founder, who also was the creator of Tbilisi Theater Museum, and later the famous Andrej Rublow Museum in Moscow.

Earlier, the Archbishop of Georgia Elijah II said that relations between Iran and Georgia have been flourishing throughout history.
