Saint Petersburg, 14 Jun (ONA) --- The National Museum launched a specialised corner at Saint Petersburg State University in the Russian Federation for a collection of Omani publications highlighting different fields.

The move comes within the framework of cultural cooperation between the National Museum and Saint Petersburg State University, represented by the Institute of Oriental Studies.
