Pointing to the international activities of the printing institute, particularly in Iraq and Afghanistan, Farzaneh said: “The institute has published 34 different works with a circulation of 400 thousand copies for Iraqi and Afghan customers since last year”.
Farzaneh reminded: “These works include religious books printed at the request of Iraqi holy shrines in Najaf and Al-Kaẓimiyyah. The institute has also produced textbooks for Afghanistan.” 
Continuing with his remarks, the AQR official referred to other international activities of the printing house over the course of last year, saying: “More than 57 thousand books have been published in different foreign languages of Urdu, Arabic, and English for distribution among foreign pilgrims of Imam Reza (AS) holy shrine”. 
“A four-volume collection of Quran, Mafatih al-Jinan, Scroll of al-Sajjad, and Nahj ul-Balagha as well as a very special holy Quran decorated with gilding and signs taken from the architecture of Imam Ali (AS) shrine are some productions of AQR’s Printing and Publication Institute for Imam Ali (AS) holy shrine”, he added. 
As a sign of cooperation between Astan Quds Razavi, the body in charge of Imam Reza (AS) holy shrine, and the holy shrine of Samarra, Farzaneh pointed to printing three different books and delivering them to this holy shrine. 
The printing house, as he said, intends to be a specialized center for publishing Islamic culture and teachings, fulfilling the demands of AQR and its cultural, artistic, and economic affiliations, and finally meeting the demands of other national, regional, and international customers”.
