Iran's Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts, and Tourism Organization (CHTHO) has issued licenses for 20 international networks to produce programs about the historical sites of Iran.
Several networks and reporters from France, Germany, Japan, the United States, Kuwait, Lebanon, Sweden and South Korea have obtained licenses from the CHTHO over the past few months, CHTHO Public Relations Office Director Amin Arefnia said in a press release on Monday.
He added that Tehran and its palace museums of Niavaran, Sadabad, Golestan, as well as the provinces of Isfahan, Gilan, Fars and Yazd have been the center of attention.
France 2, the French public national television channel, has produced reports about the attractions of Tehran, Fars, Yazd and Isfahan, while the Associated Press, the American multinational news agency, has made a report on Golestan Palace complex, a historical site registered on UNESCO's World Heritage List.
Moreover, the American network CBS has made a report about Tehran and its numerous museums, and the German television broadcaster ZDF has portrayed Isfahan and its attractions.
The Wall Street Journal has concentrated on natural attractions of Fars and Yazd, he added.
Last year, several networks including Turkish Radio and Television Corporation (TRT), the Italian news agency ANSA, and Al Mayadeen TV channel of Lebanon produced several reports and documentaries about Iran.
These reports and documentaries will help greatly to introduce Iran to the world and help to attract more tourists to the country, he concluded.
