Malaysian, Singaporian scholars to participate in Asian Dialogue Conference

Kuala Lumpur, Jan 5, IRNA – Seven Malaysian and Singaporean scholars will participate in the first International Conference of Asian Cultural Dialogues that is going to be held in Iran this month, the cultural attaché of Iranian Embassy in Malaysia said on Friday.

Mohammad Ali Sabeqi told the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) that the prominent academics and researchers will present their articles at the conference on January 13-15, 2018.

Iran's Islamic Culture and Relations Organization in cooperation with a number of Iranian universities will host the conference with the goal of laying grounds for boosting cultural, historical and social bonds among Asian nations and confronting the increasing threats of violence and extremism.

In face of the globalization process and cultural integration, the Asian countries have tried to preserve their cultural identity while welcoming the global culture and maintaining a positive engagement with it, the conference secretariat announced.

The organization launched the International Conference on Dialogue among Religions and Cultures in Asia six years ago in cooperation with Asian Parliamentary Assembly and Iran's parliament (Majlis).
