The Islamabad Club (IC), the largest cultural complex in Islamabad, initiated a Farsi language course for its members, consisting of political, civil, governmental, and judicial figures, to deepen social and cultural ties between the two neighboring nations of Iran and Pakistan.

The opening ceremony of the Farsi language course was attended by Iran’s ambassador to Pakistan Reza Amiri Moghaddam and Cultural Counselor of the Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Pakistan Ehsan Khazaei, as well as Pakistani jurist and former diplomat who served as the first Foreign Minister of Pakistan Muhammad Zafarullah Khan in the Islamabad Club (IC), located in the Pakistan's capital, on Tuesday.

IC is a cultural, sporting, and artistic complex that holds civic events in accordance with the Constitution of Pakistan's National Parliament, whose members are senior government officers in various sectors, armed forces, judiciary, and scientific, cultural plus political elites.

Zafarullah Khan, who is also a poet and writer, said that the roots of our culture and customs will be incomplete without knowing enough about the rich civilization and culture of Iran, especially the Persian language.

Amiri Moghaddam, for his part, said that the people of Iran and Pakistan as friendly and independent nations need comprehensive development to enhance their power and prosperity, noting that the new events in the field of culture and social ties can provide long-term cooperation ground.

Farsi is the mother tongue of more than 84 million Iranians, and 220 million people around the world speak Farsi, mainly in Iran, Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Pakistan, Bahrain, Iraq, and the Azerbaijan Republic.
