According to IBNA correspondent, quoting from the public relations office of Iran's National Library and Archives Organization (NLAO) Pakistan's ambassador to Iran Riffat Masood met director of that entity Ashraf Boroujerdi and visited various departments of NLAO.
Expressing pleasure over the meeting, Masood said: “Iran's National Library and Archives Organization is an impressive place where contains valuable books and documents as I have visited them.”
She stated that in terms of area and number of books, Iran's National Library is richer than Pakistan's National Library.
