Iran ready to establish sci. parks in Syria: minister

TEHRAN, Jul. 03 (MNA) – Iranian Minister of Science, Research and Technology, Mansour Gholami expressed readiness to build science and technology parks in different regions of Syria.

He made the remarks in a Tuesday meeting with Syrian Minister of Higher Education Atef Nadaf in Tehran.

Establishment of science and technology parks in Syria can significantly help the country to boost its scientific productions, he highlighted.

Taking into account the pressures and damages which have been imposed to Syria, Iran is ready to cooperate with the country to reinforce Syrian scientific and research institutes, Gholami added.

He went on to say that Iran tops in the region regarding scientific productions and has the average rank of 16 in the world in this regard, based on statistics of different international organizations.

There are 43 science and technology parks active in the country, the Iranian minister said, adding that these parks prepare the grounds for turning scientific researches to applicable products in industry and society.

Nadaf, for his part, toughed upon strong ties between the two nations and Iran’s support during Syrian crises.

The main objective of the enemy in war against Syria is to keep back its history, culture and science, he said, adding, “that’s why they have destroyed schools, universities and cultural centers.”

He hoped that these meetings would lead to increased academic ties between the two countries.

The Syrian minister also invited his Iranian counterpart to visit Syria and its universities.
