Austria to Hold Iran Cultural Week

Austria is set to host Iran's cultural week, introducing Persian arts, culture and handicrafts to visitors in the capital city of Vienna.

Iran's Minister of Culture and Islamic Guidance Seyyed Mohammad Hosseini announced the news in a press conference held on the sidelines of a meeting with Austrian National Library Director Johanna Rachinger.

The Austrian delegation visited Iran to sign an agreement with Iran's National Library and Archive Organization, Mehr News Agency reported.

“Political issues have had no affects on cultural relations between Iran and other countries,” Hosseini said, adding that Vienna will host an Iranian cultural week in spring 2011.

Iran and Austria have not had any problems in their mutual cultural relations, he said.

Hosseini also mentioned the earliest introduction of Austrians to Persian culture was during the Safavid era when they first became acquainted with Persian carpets and culture.

Cultural cooperation between Iran and Austria will also pave the grounds for better presentation of manuscripts housed at both Iran's National Library and Archive Organization, and the library of the University of Vienna.

Hosseini expressed hope that a Persian language and literature department be established at the University of Vienna in the near future.

Also talking in the press conference, Rachinger said that a total of 8,500 books are kept at the Austrian National Library and that 50,000 books will be added to the library each year.

She announced that the Persian manuscripts housed in Austrian centers will be displayed during a future exhibition.
