CHTHO Ready to Restore the Historical Monuments in Iraq

 

31 May 2009

 

 

LONDON, (CAIS) -- Iran’s Cultural Heritage, Tourism, and Handicrafts Organisation (CHTHO) is ready to collaborate with Iraq in renovating the historical monuments of the country, Cultural heritage official said on Friday.

 

Ali Falegari, head of Iran’s Kordestan department of cultural heritage who was visiting Iran’s handicrafts exhibit in Iraq’s Sulaymaniyah region told the Persian service of IRNA, “Iran’s Kordestan department can help the Kurdish region of Iraq in conducting excavations and carrying out historical researches.”

 

“Northern Iraq enjoys a solid, intact market for Iranian handicrafts. In addition, Iran can play major role in medical tourism in attracting tourists from the region,” he said.

 

Handicrafts from the different cities of Isfahan, Mashhad, and Kermanshah have also been put on display at the exhibit but the handicrafts of Kordestan especially its wooden artefacts attract the most visitors, he explained.

 

He later added that with the Bashmaq border of Marvian region in Kermanshah Province being officially recognized, there are more possibilities for pilgrims from Iran and Iraq, and that it can help increase number of tourists as well.

 

Falegari regarded such exhibits as a worthwhile experience for Iran in tourism management. The exhibit which opened on May 26 will close on Saturday.

 

Iraq considered to be as one of the Iranian sphere due to its historical and cultural connections since 7th century BCE till 16th century CE, and particularly since the Kurds are of Iranian stock and their language is closely related to Persian.
