Iran’s Culture Minister Abbas Salehi made the statement on the sidelines of the opening ceremony of the exhibition, IRNA wrote.
The exhibition provides space for putting the most important Qur’anic activities on display, he added.
He said that this is the first time the event is hosting a guest of honor, which is Pakistan, adding that the majority of Pakistan's population is Muslim and it has great potentials to expand Qur’anic ties.
The event also creates an environment for families to be in a Qur’anic atmosphere during the month of Ramadan, he noted.
The 27th edition of the event opened in a ceremony attended by Salehi and a number of officials and foreign guests in Tehran on Saturday, May 11.
The expo’s 27th edition has brought together Muslim exhibitors from different countries. This year’s exhibition is also playing host to guests from Lebanon, India, Turkey and several other countries to showcase their services and products related to the Qur’an.
As happens every year, in this edition the most significant Qur’anic products were unveiled. The exhibition also has numerous other sections including photography, movies and digital media, all dedicated to the promotion of the Qur’an.
For Muslims, Ramadan is an opportunity to spend more time with the Holy Book of Qur’an. Every year, during the month of Ramadan, Iran holds this international exhibition as a place for Muslims to see the latest religious products and services.
The event will run for 14 days.
