Iran eyes realization of an Islamic civilization: Official

Moscow, Feb 20, IRNA - Iran is seeking to create an Islamic civilization, an official said amid reports on Russia hosting an international conference on Iran's culture.

“Islamic Republic’s philosophy for the future is the realization of an Islamic civilization,' Ebrahim Torkamani, president of Iran’s Islamic Culture and Relations Organization said on Wednesday on the sidelines of the first International Congress of Eurasian Iranologists Association that is being held in the Russian city of Saint Petersburg.

“Eurasia is considered an important region and because it’s home to one of the biggest civilizations in the world where Iranian civilization’s influence can be seen there, there’s a good opportunity in wide range of sectors,” he added.

He called on scientists to carry out deeper studies of the Eurasian region in a bid to prevent it from becoming a place for spreading hate.

The First International Congress of Eurasian Iranologists Association has been organized by the Eastern Studies Center of Saint Petersburg, Hermitage Museum and the Iranian Embassy in Russia.
