Netherlands values cultural cooperation with Iran: Envoy
Tehran, The embassy of the Netherlands in Tehran attaches much importance to cultural exchanges with Iran and focuses on the commonalities between the two countries, the ambassador said on Tuesday.

It is necessary that in the current critical era the two countries focus on the topics that help them deepen their relations, the diplomat said.
