Ira­nian Cul­ture, Civ­i­liza­tion Have No Bor­der

Iran News - - DOMESTIC -

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.
