Mayor’s Congrats on the Day of Pécs
Mayor of Shiraz Heidar Eskandarpour issued a message congratulating his counterpart Attila Peterffy and the people of Pécs on the occasion of the Day of Pécs, which is marked annually on 1 September.
Referring to the limitations and challenges the Covid-19 pandemic has caused, Mayor Eskandarpour expressed hope that the city administration and the citizens of Pécs would be able to “joyously celebrate this important event.”
Commenting on his counterpart’s announcement of the restrictions of the celebrations to the locals because of the pandemic, mayor added “It would have been a great pleasure for me to join you and the people of Pécs for the occasion. We totally understand the situation as we experienced the same situation for Shiraz Day celebrations, having to avoid public gatherings, cancelling many programs or replacing them with online ones”.
Mayor Eskandarpour expressed hope that the two sides would “further develop their friendly relationships in the post-corona era, while looking forward to the possibility of making the most of
e-platforms to organize joint activities”.
Shiraz and Pécs signed a sister-city agreement in November 2015.
