Iran says ready to host Saudi cultural week

TEHRAN  :– Head of the Islamic Culture and Relations Organization (ICRO) Mohammad Mehdi Imanipour has said that Tehran is ready to host Saudi Arabia’s cultural week.

Imanipour and Saudi Arabia’s Ambassador to Iran Abdullah bin Saud Al-Anzi met in Tehran on Sunday to discuss cultural diplomacy.

Imanipour emphasized the importance of cultural and scientific ties between Iran and Saudi Arabia, stating that cultural ties serve as the safest way to bring the two nations closer to each other.

He also pointed out that both countries face the common issue of Islamophobia, and that the world is grappling with double standards when it comes to diplomacy and media activities.

A prime example of those double standards is the ongoing war in Gaza, the Iranian official said, adding that if any other party had been involved in crimes like those happening in Gaza, it would have been dealt with seriously.

Al-Anzi acknowledged the shared values between the two neighboring and brotherly countries, stating that their relations are based on mutual respect and good neighborliness.

He emphasized the significant role of both countries in the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, and called for the acceleration of cultural cooperation between Iran and Saudi Arabia.
