Iran to get strong with culture as top priority

Shiraz, IRNA – Culture and Islamic Guidance minister said here on Wednesday on Hafez Memorial Day: Constructing a strong Iran will be possible by harmonized combination of economy, politics and culture, with culture as the top priority.

Mohammad Mehdi Esmaili said that a strong Iran will be established when the arts and culture lovers of this country will be at the topmost priority and dealt with as the most revered.

He said at the ceremony in the presence of the Vice President for Women’s Affairs Ensiyeh Khazali: You cannot find any Iranian citizen who has no memory, or knows no piece of prose of poetry by Saadi and Hafez by heart.

He said that today in the planning typically the welfare and economic issues are in mind, which is quite natural, but the cultural atmosphere, too, should be designed and thought about that it will never be sent to margins and always remain at the context.

“Paying due attention to such symbols, providing for the appropriate atmosphere and listening to the cultural personalities arguments, appointing them at the management posts of the country, and paying special attention to the arts and culture is one of the strategies for materializing the strong Iran objective,” he said.

Esmaili further reiterated that presently the president has this important and significant characteristic of respecting culture and the cultural personalities, and thus making Iran strong, as he has always said.

The culture minister said that Shiraz is the city of poetry and literature, and we should all contribute so that when we set foot in this highly cultural land in which many of the grand literary personalities of Iran are buried, we will feel the priority of culture.
