An Iranian cultural delegation visited the “International Center for the Human sciences” where it was hosted by the director of the center Dr. Adonis Akra. The Iranian group included, among others, the cultural adviser of the Iranian embassy in Beirut, Mehdi Chariha Madar, and the director of the Center for Human and Cultural Studies in Iran, Hussein Ali Kabadi. Discussions focused on the relaunch of cultural agreements between Lebanon and Iran and the exchange of expertise and students between the two countries.
It was also agreed that a joint committee should be created to set up joint cultural projects in partnership with international cultural and educational organizations such as Unesco. The delegation of Iran was then briefed on the activities of the center which works for the propagation of research and culture and for the promotion of democracy, dialogue and peace in the Arab world through conferences and seminars.
At the end of the visit, Dr. Akra gave the members of the delegation the book “100 Years since the Great War”, published by the ICHS on the occasion of the first centenary of the First World War.
