Envoy terms universities as development chain in Iran-China ties  

Beijing, June 16, IRNA – Iranian Ambassador to China Mohammad Keshavarz-zadeh said universities were chains of developing and reinforcing relations among countries especially Iran and China.

While visiting Beijing International Studies University on Saturday, he said there are many opportunities for promoting relations between Iran and China, with universities playing a potentially major role in this regard.

He also referred to ‘Belt and Road Initiative’ as a factor for developing ties, saying people-to-people diplomacy as one of China’s programs is important in reinforcing academic ties.

Pointing to increasing ties in the framework of ‘Belt and Road Initiative’, he urged both sides to establish more cooperation to stand against Western countries negative propaganda campaign.

He went on to say that the Islamic Azad University with many domestic and foreign branches has the capacity to maintain scientific cooperation with Chinese universities.
