UNESCO to Commemorate Ghazali, Roudaki

Wednesday, January 16, 2008

United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization has approved commemoration ceremonies for Imam Mohammad Ghazali and Roudaki, respectively in 2008 and 2009.

UNESCO regularly commemorates scientific and literary dignitaries of various countries in order to promote international understanding and encourage more cultural relations among nations as well as to support international peace.

Therefore, the world body will ask member countries every two years to announce centennials or millennia of their cultural, scientific or arts dignitaries to be registered by UNESCO so that appropriate conferences and commemorations can be arranged for them.

Thus far, nine Iranian personalities have been introduced to UNESCO. Commemoration of the 950th birthday of Imam Mohammad Ghazali (1058-1111) will be marked by Iran in 2008 while 1150th birthday of the Iranian poet, Roudaki, will be marked in 2009 in cooperation with Tajikistan, Afghanistan, and Kazakhstan.
