TEHRAN.(Iranart) – An exhibition of photos and documents featuring major events occurring over 73 years of relations between Iran and the United Nations opened Monday at a gallery in the northwestern Iranian city of Tabriz.
Maria Dotsenko, director of the United Nations Information Centre (UNIC) in Tehran, and a number of East Azarbaijan provincial officials attended the opening ceremony of the showcase.
Dotsenko expressed her thanks to Iran’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and IRNA for supporting the UNIC to organize the exhibition.
She acknowledged the contributions made by experienced Iranian diplomats over these years to strengthen relations between the UN and Iran, and said that, as a result to date, nine persons have served as UN secretary-general, seven of whom visited Iran.
One of the photos on display at the exhibition shows Iranian representative Hassan Taqizadeh signing the Charter of the United Nations on July 26, 1945.
The exhibition will run at the gallery of the 22 Bahman Cineplex until November 18.
