His Excellency Mr. Seyyed Reza Amiri, Minister of Culture and Islamic Guidance of Islamic Republic of Iran,
On behalf of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism of the Republic of Azerbaijan and my own behalf, I have the honor to extend my deepest compliment and heartfelt thanks to your excellency regarding your assistance for organization of the Days of Azerbaijani Culture in the Islamic Republic of Iran on July 3-9, 2017.
With your remarkable support and assistance, in the framework of Days, photo-exhibition, Azerbaijan Cinema Week, Azerbaijan Culture Week, a joint concert of Azerbaijani and Iranian artists and other cultural activities were carried out successfully in Tehran and in Isfahan. All these cultural activities, the meeting of tourism industry representatives of Azerbaijan and Iran and presentation of tourism potentials of Azerbaijan as well, cannot but contribute to collaboration and exchange between two neighbor countries.
A number of meetings between Azerbaijani delegation and representatives of state and government of Iran were of great importance for discussion of cooperation perspectives in the fields of culture and tourism.
Any joint efforts towards the consolidation of relations between Azerbaijan and Iran as well as the Days of Azerbaijani Culture in Iran will foster mutual understanding, friendly ties and dialogue between two people and create a more favorable business environment.
Looking forward to productive collaboration in bilateral and international platforms, on behalf of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism of Republic of Azerbaijan, once again please accept the assurance of my highest consideration.
