Baku will host a Week of Iranian Films co-organized by the Iranian embassy’s culture center and Azerbaijan’s Tourism and Culture Ministry.
The opening ceremony is scheduled for May 14 at Nizami Cinema Center, the center reported.
The film 'A bite of sugar' will be demonstrated on May 15 and on May 16, while the visitors will be able to enjoy the film 'Painting pool' on May 17.
Azerbaijan and Iran have had diplomatic relations since 1918. Iran recognized Azerbaijan's independence in 1991 and diplomatic relations between the two countries were reestablished in 1992.
Currently, the two countries are focused on expanding economic ties in various fields, including industry, agriculture, energy, alternative energy, and transportation.
Iran is one of the top destinations for Azerbaijan tourists, while Azerbaijan continues to attract tourists from neighboring Iran. The country unilaterally abolished its visa regime with Azerbaijan in 2009, thus giving Azerbaijani citizens the opportunity to travel to Iran without a visa.
Today, the Land of Fire is developing its tourism potential and together with Iran may attract more tourists from around the world.
