By President of Iran: Culture Minister Tasked with Expansion of Persian Language Education in Pakistan
TEHRAN-Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi has described Lahore as the "cultural symbol" of Pakistan, saying his visit to the city is aimed at strengthening cultural ties between the two neighboring countries.
In a meeting with the Chief Minister of Punjab Maryam Nawaz on Tuesday, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi expressed Iran’s readiness to expand Persian language education in Pakistan.
Considering the shared cultural heritage and the importance of the Persian language in Pakistan, President Raisi tasked the Minister of Culture and Islamic Guidance with coordinating the necessary groundwork and collaboration with relevant Pakistani authorities in this regard, Mehr reported. 
President Raisi emphasized the continuous growth and enhancement of bilateral relations between Iran and Pakistan since the 1979 Islamic Revolution. He highlighted that the determination of the leaders of both countries to expand cooperation has rendered futile the efforts of some countries to undermine the friendly relations between Tehran and Islamabad. He expressed that his visit to Lahore aimed to strengthen cultural ties between the two countries and pay homage to the late Allama Muhammad Iqbal as he is considered a cultural symbol of Pakistan.
For her part, Maryam Nawaz expressed gratitude for President Raisi's visit to Punjab and his presence at the mausoleum of Allama Iqbal. She also appreciated his visit to GC University in Lahore, one of the oldest universities in South Asia, founded in 1864.
