The 23rd International Exhibition of Press and News Agencies, which was officially inaugurated in Iran’s capital on Saturday, has hosted many international officials.

On the sidelines of the 23rd International Exhibition of Press and News Agencies, South Korean Ambassador Kim Seung-ho stated that he would eagerly welcome any offer from Iranian artists to showcase their works in exhibitions at his residence in Tehran.

“I would like to offer any Iranian artists who are interested to display works in my residence,” the ambassador told the Tehran Times in an interview held at the 23rd Press Exhibition on Sunday.

“Iranian ancient culture is the cradle of humanity, and as humans we enjoy ancient Persian culture. This Persian culture has long affected European culture, and was also taken to China via the Silk Road and then through China, Korea was also affected. That is, Iranian culture is deeply rooted and widespread in Korea, but many people do not know that,” he explained about his interest in Persian art.

He finally stated that, “The weeklong exhibit will be held in the central hall of the Korea Foundation. The artifacts have been selected by Iran’s Cultural Heritage, Tourism and Handicrafts Organization and 10 Iranian artists will be visiting Korea during the exhibit.”

Malaysian and New Zealander editors also paid a visited to the exhibition. Tim Murphy is the co-editor of Newsroom, an independent New Zealand-based news site. He was also the former editor-in-chief of the New Zealand Herald.

Mowardi Mahmud, the senior foreign editor of Utusan Malaysia, was also the other guest visiting the exhibition. The two foreign editors discussed the issues surrounding foreign news outlets with the Tehran Times editor in chief Mohammad Qaderi.
