Cultural Advisor at Iran's Embassy in Kuwait Dr. Abbas Khamayar on Monday described Kuwaiti-Iranian cultural relations as strong and special.
Khamayar's remarks came in a press conference on the occasion of the planned visit of Iranian Minister of Culture and Islamic Guidance Ali Janati, to start Tuesday.
Janati is visiting Kuwait upon an invitation from the National Council for Culture, Arts and Letters to contribute to a seminar on the late Iranian poet Shams-ud-Din Muhammad Hafez-e Shirazi (1326-1390).
The cultural and artistic cooperation between the two countries is thriving currently, Khamayar said, adding that Iran has recently hosted a large number of Kuwaiti cultural and art activities including formative art gallery.
Moreover, many media, academia and cultural delegations have recently visited Iran and vise versa, he said.
Iran is planning to hold a plethora of cultural activities in Kuwait in the coming months including a whole week for Iranian cinema movies, he said.
Khamayar noted that such activities play a key role in boosting people-to-people relations.
