In that session, Esmaeili expressed hope that by reopening Iran the cultural attaché office in Venezuela, establishing important events such as joint cultural days and weeks in the two countries will be resumed.
Cultural commonalities and a common point of view in the international arena are considered as the basis for the developing relations between different fields, he added.
The issue of resistance and standing against arrogance is one of the cultural fields between the two countries, which can pave the way for holding cultural and resistance festivals, including translation and publication of books, he noted, irangov.ir reported.
