The two sides agreed to mark International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People and a photo exhibition in November.
They will also cooperate to organise cultural activities, seminars and workshops to enhance understanding between people of the two countries towards the celebration of the 35th anniversary of diplomatic ties.
