Ambassador: Iran-japan ties benefit from cultural support
Iran-japan relations are deep rooted and take advantage of the support from both nations and cultures, said Iran’s ambassador to Japan.
According to IRNA, Morteza Rahmani-sarmadi, who was speaking in a meeting with managers and staff of a number of Japanese TV, radio stations as well as some leading Japanese newspapers, pointed out that next year will mark the 90th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two states.
The event, he noted, provides a very good opportunity to broaden academic, cultural and tourism cooperation.
To mark the occasion, the two sides have drawn up various programs which will be covered by the Japanese media to deepen cultural ties between the two ancient civilizations, he said.
Appreciating the presence of Japanese media representatives at Iran’s Embassy, the ambassador proposed the holding of meetings in the future to work out a framework for regular cooperation between Japanese media and Iranian Embassy and their Iranian counterparts.
In the meeting, the Japanese media voiced readiness to expand cooperation with Iran’s Embassy to help promote cultural cooperation.
