The works by Imam Khomeini will be first submitted to the International Advisory Committee (IAC) that guides the planning and  implementation of the Memory of the World Program.

Speaking at a workshop held in Tabriz on Wednesday by Iran’s Evaluation Committee for UNESCO program, director of the committee Hojjatoleslam Mohammad-Ali Abhari said that Iran submits two documentaries to UNESCO every two years.

The Shahnameh of Baysunqur, one of three ancient copies of Ferdowsi’s epic masterpiece, and the Endowment Deed of Rab-e Rashidi were inscribed on UNESCO’s Memory of the World Register list in 2007, he added.

The two-day workshop was organized to familiarize participants with the process of selecting and introducing documents to UNESCO.
