Iran's cultural office in Damascus has held an exhibition of paintings by contemporary Iranian artists, in the Syrian capital.

According to IRNA, the 15-day event displays 23 artworks, on loan from Iranian museums, at the Al-Mazzeh Center.

‘The exhibited artworks are manifestations of Iran's rich civilization and contemporary art,’ Al-Seyid told IRNA.

Holding such events can improve cultural relations between the two countries, he added.
