Tunisia Keen to Enhance Cultural Ties with Iran

TEHRAN (FNA)- Tunisian Minister of Culture Mehdi Mabrouk voiced his country's willingness to expand cultural ties with Islamic countries, Iran in particular.



"We in Tunisia are willing to have cultural interactions with all Islamic countries, specially with Iran because Islam offers moderation and distance from extremism and we want to pursue the same path," Mabrouk said at a ceremony in Iran's Central city of Yazd.

He stressed that the Iranian nation's experiences in resistance and persistence are "very valuable", adding that these experiences can guide the Tunisian nation to triumph.

In August 2012, Iranian and Tunisian presidents in a meeting in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, discussed the latest developments in the region and the Muslim world, specially in Syria.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his Tunisian counterpart Muhammad Monsef al-Marzouki, who were both in Mecca to attend the 4th extraordinary summit of member states of Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), met on the sidelines of the meeting.

After the victory of Tunisian revolution in July 14, 2011, the meeting was the most important meeting between the highest officials of both countries.

The two presidents discussed bilateral ties, unity among Islamic world nations in defending Muslims and their sanctities as well as issue of Syria.
