SHIRAZ, Feb. 09 (MNA) – During the commemoration ceremony of the 70th anniversary of the establishment of UNESCO in Shiraz, an MoU was signed between Iranian National Commission for UNESCO and Shiraz Municipality.

In the Monday ceremony, the social and cultural deputy for the Mayor of Shiraz Mohammad Farrokhzadeh noted the MoU constituted the sustainable development of the city, utilization of research achievements in the world, joining cultural treaties suited to Iran’s culture, educational topics and introducing prominent and honorable figures in Shiraz on the international scene.

According to Farrokhzadeh, there are over 1,900 registered monuments, 700 shrines, more than 120 different fields of crafts and many other famous cultural figures in Fars Province.

“Fars is one of the most unique provinces in Iran either from a geographical, cultural or political point of view,” said Farrokhzadeh, stressing that planning was required to introduce the city’s various potentials to the world.
