Iran's stall shines in Zagreb Book Fair

Iran's stall is gleaming at the 40th International Interliber book fair in Zagreb, Croatia.

The stall is organized by Iran's Embassy in Zagreb and it presents precious Iranian works in English and Croatian.

The fair, which is the most important cultural event in the Balkans, began on November 7 and will end today. The book fair has drawn 300 publishers from 16 countries including Iran, Austria, France, Italy, the US, the UK, China, Germany, Croatia and Spain, reported IRNA on Saturday.

The fair began with a ceremony which was addressed by Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenković and attended by cabinet members, diplomats and cultural figures including Culture Minister Nina Obuljen-Koržinek.

The culture minister said the Croatian book market was still in the process of recovering from the financial collapse of a substantial number of local bookstore chains. She pointed to the government's initiatives to reverse this process which, she noted, should bear fruit over the next few years and help get the industry back on its feet.
