During the festival’s opening ceremony, Iran’s Ambassador to Russia Mahdi Sanaei talked about the expansion of bilateral ties and said that boosting cultural relations of Iran and Russia are as important as economic and political ties. “Iran’s cinema, as a spiritual one, can convey the concept of family and spiritual values to the Russians,” he added.
