Lebanon’s Minister of Tourism, emphasizing that no carpet in the world can compete with Iranian carpet in terms of work quality and shape and art, said that Iranian carpet in Lebanon is unrivaled and has a special place.
“Avedis Guidanian” In an interview with IRNA correspondent Beirut added: “Despite the sanctions, Iran continues to be the first in the carpet and carpet industry, and some Iranian businessmen are exporting carpets to Lebanon, the goods that are welcomed here and have their buyers.
“Carpet is a commodity that Iran can kill in the world, as well as other industrial, agricultural and medical commodities that have made great progress, and even this development is significant compared to the developed countries of the world.
In the case of tourism relations between Lebanon and Iran, Guidanian said that tourism ties with the Islamic Republic of Iran are limited to the relations between the private sector of two countries and tourism and transportation companies. Of course, these companies create incentives for tourism between the two countries.
He added: “There is no direct relationship between the ministries of the two countries in the tourism sector, but I was invited to Iran to attend the tenth exhibition of tourism, where they met with many officials of the tourism sector, Time has come.
Lebanon’s Minister of Tourism, said that Lebanon and Iran were particularly well versed in the field of tourism before the Syria war, and large collections of Iranians who traveled to Syria for pilgrimage to the holy and religious sites also landed on land in Lebanon, but the number of Iranian tourists in Lebanon has declined much since the Syrian war because of the impossibility of traveling to this country.
Persian carpet has been considered as a sublime embodiment of timeless beauty and elegance over thousands of years in human history and it has constantly evolved into a more elegant artistic creation throughout its existence.
