TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Culture Week is slated to be held in Montevideo, Uruguay, later in November.
The cultural event is slated to be held November 20-24 with the cooperation of the Iranian embassy and the Universidad de la Repْblica (UdelaR) in the Uruguayan capital.
Art in ancient Iran, Iranian cinema, Iranian lifestyle in certain eras, Iranian carpet, and life of Iranian world-known Persian poet Ferdowsi are among the issues to be dealt with at the event.
In relevant remarks in early 2017, Iranian Ambassador to Uruguay Abolfazl Pasandideh and Uruguay's Vice President and Senate Speaker Raul Sendic in a meeting in Montevideo called for broadening of bilateral ties in different fields.
During the meeting in Montevideo,, Pasandideh and Sendic explored avenues for bolstering and reinvigorating mutual cooperation in different fields, political and economic relations in particular.
During the meeting, Pasandideh underlined that last year's visit to Iran by Sendic opened a new chapter in the two countries' relations, and voiced Tehran's eagerness to deepen cooperation with Montevideo in scientific, cultural, industrial and agricultural fields.
Sendic, for his part, expressed satisfaction over the momentum created in ties between the two countries, and emphasized his country’s readiness to expand bilateral relations with Iran, including holding the 6th Economic Joint Commission in the Uruguayan capital, Montevideo.
The Uruguayan politician in a visit to Iran last May met with senior Iranian officials, including President Hassan Rouhani and Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani.
