Safavid, Qajar Documents in Munich Archives

Hundreds of documents related to Iran-Germany ties during the Safavid (1501-1736) and Qajar (1789-1925) dynasties are kept at the Munich State Archives.
The State Archives in Munich is a place in which the historical and diplomacy documents of Iran and Germany are kept; classified docs which can shed light on the hidden angles of the two countries relations in old times, Mehr News Agency reported.
The documents related to those periods include credentials of Iran’s ambassadors, invitations, meetings of officials, letters exchanged among kings as well as accords and agreements.
The doors of the archives are barely open to the public.
Head of Iran’s National Library and Archives Organization of Iran (NLAI) Seyed Reza Salehi-Amiri visited the archives last month during which he proposed the electronic exchange of Iran-German historical documents and easing the terms for handing them to researchers.
According to Salehi-Amiri, a total of 3084 dossiers related to Iran-Germany ties are kept in the Munich archive center.
