TEHRAN, June 9 (MNA) -- The Spanish University of Alicante and Iran’s cultural office in Madrid signed a memorandum of understanding to promote cultural ties.

The MOU was signed at the venue of the university between the head of the university Ignacio Jiménez Raneda and Iran’s cultural attaché Ahmad Khezri.

 

Both parties agreed to develop bilateral cultural relations and to provide the facilities to hold conferences, conduct research, exchange students and academic teachers, as well as exchange books and scientific research.

 

Jiménez Raneda expressed his appreciation and said that the University of Alicante is holding a course on teaching the Persian language and many interested students are becoming familiar with Persian culture and civilization.
