Iranian Minister of Culture and Islamic Guidance Abbas Salehi stressed the significance of launching the street of culture and art in Tehran.
Talking to Tehran Mayor Mohammad Ali Afshani, Salehi said it is expected that in the short term the issue of launching the street of culture and art will be pursued in collaboration with Tehran Municipality.
Due to Tehran's influence on all of the cultural and social spheres of the country, he added that a memorandum of understanding (MoU) was signed between Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance and Tehran Municipality in the past, which unfortunately was not implemented.
Salehi also expressed hope that the relationship between the two sides could be expanded and the implemented measures would be pursued in the form of establishing a joint committee.
“Finally, we hope that with the cooperation of Tehran Municipality, we will witness a boom in the field of written culture, especially libraries of the capital, in the short term.”
