Addressing the participants, Dr Dotsenko thanked IRNA, Ministry of Foreign Affair's Center for Documents and History of Diplomacy, UN archives and Institute for Iranian Contemporary Historical Studies for providing these amazingly interesting unique photos and documents. 

The exhibition was organized in Tabriz by IRNA News Agency in the framework of the cooperation between UNIC and IRNA with the support from the Provincial authorities.

“These photos and documents prove that Iran has been always active in foreign affairs and invested efforts to promote international peace and security and multilateralism. Iran was among 51 UN founding Member States in 1945 and is actively engaged today in strengthening role of the UN”, she said.
