TEHRAN, Dec. 27 (MNA) -- The Cultural Heritage and Tourism Organization (CHTO) is to establish a museum of the Persian Gulf in the region.

CHTO Director Hossein Mar’ashi announced on Sunday that the organization plans to establish ten new museums in different parts of the country.

The Persian Gulf museum will exhibit the latest archaeological discoveries and cultural changes in the region, proving that the Persian Gulf was one of the most important cultural areas of Iran.

On the use of an unacceptable alternative name for the Persian Gulf in the recently published eighth edition of the National Geographic Atlas, Mar’ashi stated that establishing a museum dedicated to the Persian Gulf region is far more important than the unreasonable act of the National Geographic Society."
