Monday, November 6, 2017 - 10:33

Iran's National Museum has hosted the exhibition of ancient South Korean relics in Tehran, following a ceremony attended by Ali Asghar Mounesan, the head of Iran's Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization, and South Korean Ambassador to Iran Kim Seung-ho.

The exhibition titled "Silla and Pars: A Common Memory” displays 144 relics from Gyeongju National Museum that largely holds relics of the Silla Kingdom, of which Gyeongju was the capital. The exhibition will run until Dec. 15, ISNA reported.

Mounesan said the exhibition is a sign of Iran's peaceful diplomacy and its international cultural interactions, "Today, cultural diplomacy is considered a useful means in international relations and highlighting common cultural values is essential to global peace."

Mounesan noted that Iran and South Korea have maintained friendly relations for 15 centuries, despite fundamental changes in global geopolitics.

The South Korean ambassador said the exhibition is a symbol of his nation's warm welcome to Iranians, although the country's civilization is much younger than Iran's, "Almost all governments undergo changes within four or five years and the only channel for constant relations goes through culture."
