Webinar on Nowruz Diplomacy 22nd March 2021

A webinar on the perspective of Nowruz was held in collaboration with Abrar Institute of International Studies and Research, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Tourism, Radio Farhang, with the aim of examining Nowruz potentialities in developing cultural diplomacy with countries celebrating Nowruz. Iran, Afghanistan and other relevant countries; Mr. Pourmarjan and Dr. Mohammad Ali Rabbani, Cultural Counselors of I.R. Iran in Baku and New Delhi have participated in the same and spoke about the capacity of Nowruz to develop cultural cooperation with two countries.

Dr. Rabbani has described the Nowruz as a reflection of the common ideas, human ideals, culture and customs between Iran and other Nowruz celebrating countries and an effective capacity in cultural exchanges between these countries. Regarding the importance of Nowruz in Iranian cultural diplomacy, he stated; First of all, India is one of the most important and influential country in the cultural, literary and civilizational view of Iran. Especially during the last eight centuries and today, despite political ups and downs in relations with Iran, the people of India respectfully remember this. There is a potentiality of Persian language and culture in India and the reflections that Nowruz had in the works of great Indian Persian poets such as Bedil Dehlavi and Amir Khosrow. It is great for cultural and literary collaborations and interactions. Another point is the common traditions regarding Nowruz among some parts of India, especially Kashmir. Nowruz is one of the elements of Iranian culture that has been able to spread to this region of India in the past few centuries and is still celebrated by the people of this region. Therefore, these common traditions and the attachment of the Indian people to Iran and Nowruz can be considered as part of the process of globalization of Nowruz. He added, Nowruz is a territorial celebration and more than everything is associated with the name of the land of Iran, but in reality it has always been more extensive than Iran and it has turned into the common Indo-Iranian identity.
