Ambassador of India to Lebanon, Dr. Suhel Ajaz Khan, on Tuesday inaugurated an art exhibition titled “Lebanese-Indian relations within the past two years”, at the “Elite Culture and Education” center in Tripoli.

The exhibition’s paintings depicted the scientific and cultural exchange between Lebanon and India.

Ambassador Khan was welcomed by Elite Center Head, Iman Darnika Al-Kamali, with whom he discussed bilateral relations between the two countries, prospects for their development, as well as the joint role of the Indian Embassy and Elite Center in spreading the Indian culture in Tripoli, through various activities.

The meeting stressed the substantial need to adhere to Mahatma Gandhi’s principles of non-violence, in addition to lectures that shed light on the political and social system in India, as well as the Ayurvedic medicine, and all forms of cooperation and agreements that took place during the last two years between India and Lebanon.
