Iranian Culture, Civilization Have No Border
TEHRAN (IRNA)- Iranian Minister of Culture and Islamic Guidance Seyed Abbas Salehi urged US politicians to come to realize that Iranian culture, art and civilization have no border and isolation.
Salehi made the remarks Friday in a message addressing the opening ceremony of the 35th Tehran International Short Film Festival.
‘We are living in an era in which a part of the world, with a neophyte history and government, is trying to show as isolated an ancient land with a long-standing civilization,’ the message reads.
American politicians are trying to disintegrate ties between Iran and the world, he added.
They pay billions of dollars bribe to cut off trade relations and they threaten and put pressure to damage our political-economic ties, Salehi noted.
The 35th edition of Tehran International Short Film Festival kicked off on Nov 9 and is planned to end on Nov 13.
