    TEHRAN -- Celebrated filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami has visited the Tehran Peace Museum at the invitation of Hassan Hassani-Sadi, a war veteran who is a curator of the museum, some Persian news agencies reported on Saturday.
     
    “Visiting the museum inspires me and everybody to do whatever we can for the war veterans,” Kirostami said after visiting the museum along with Hassani-Sadi who was wounded by Iraqi chemical weapons during the 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq war.
     
    The Tehran Peace Museum was established in 2005 to promote the culture of peace by displaying the grief of the victims of Iraqi chemical attacks during the Iran-Iraq war.
     
    Kiarostami said that he will suggest that everybody visit the museum and also proposed setting up similar museums across Iran.         
     
    “I arrived at this museum with a typical mindset, but from now on I will be forever thinking about all the things I learned at this museum, especially about the tearing eyes of Mr. Hassani-Sadi, which by themselves confirm all the documents on display at the museum,” he stated.
     
    Hassani-Sadi has undergone eye surgery for eleven times for the injuries he received from chemical weapons.
     
    Habib Ahmadzadeh, the author the war novel “Chess with the Doomsday Machine”, and art expert Alireza Sami-Azar also accompanied Kiarostami during the visit.

    TEHRAN – The director of the National Library and Archives of Iran (NLAI), Reza Salehi-Amiri, has expressed his concerns over the poor preservation conditions of a large number of rare Iranian manuscripts, which are being kept at libraries in Central Asia, Pakistan and India. 
     
    “About one million Iranian manuscripts in Persian and Arabic are being kept in India and Pakistan and there are about 500,000 Persian manuscripts in the Central Asian countries,” he told the Persian service of MNA on Sunday.
     
    “Unfortunately I must admit that the preservation situation in these countries is alarming for the manuscripts,” he lamented.
     
    “These manuscripts are considered as Iranian cultural heritage so we should either buy the manuscripts and transfer them to Iran or provide a digital version for books,” he added.
     
    He said that over 2600 exquisite manuscripts are also being kept at the National Library of France and there are many more in Spain, he added.
     
    The NLAI has conducted some negotiations with the government to provide the necessary funds for buying these manuscripts and transfer them to Iran, he concluded.

    TEHRAN -- Minister of Culture and Islamic Guidance Ali Jannati says that the best way to fight against Iranophobia and Shiaphobia is the clever usage of Iran’s soft power.
     
    He made the comments in the ceremony held to commemorate the National Research and Technology Days, the Persian service of IRNA reported on Monday.
     
    Pointing to the deliberate intention of the world media in promoting Iranophobia and Shiaphobia in the Middle East, Jannati called it a significant challenge for Iran’s diplomacy in the region.
     
    Jannati said that one of the greatest duties of the cultural representatives of Iran is to fight against such (malicious) intention, and to offer appropriate examples and proper theories of Islamic states.
     
    “The most significant chance of the Islamic Republic of Iran in the recent events in the region is to control or manage the events with the help of the soft power of culture in all its aspects, since culture is the most important target,” he explained.
     
    The minister said that art and cultural programs like concerts and seminars can help but play no influential role, adding that extensive and specific programs are needed.
     
    Several seminars are being held to commemorate the National Research and Technology Days (December 14-17) underway at the Tehran Permanent International Fairgrounds.
