Pakistan eyeing stronger scientific ties with Iran: Minister

Isfahan, July 9, IRNA – Pakistan's Minister of Science and Technology Chaudhry Fawad Hussain said his country is fully prepared to cooperate with Iran in various scientific fields including mathematics, architecture and academic exchanges.

At a meeting with Isfahan's governor on Tuesday, the Pakistani minister said that there were ample grounds for cooperation between Iran and Pakistan in terms of science and technology.

He also emphasized the role of the Iranian central city in strengthening the relations.

Fawad Hussain also noted that the scientific cooperation can lead to stronger political and economic relations.

The meeting was held on the sidelines of the 4th meeting of Board of Trustees members of the Economic Cooperation Organization's Science Foundation (ECOSF). It kicked off on Monday and will work for two days.

Referring to the role of science and technology in developing ties among countries and the ECOSF, the minister said, Iran, Pakistan and Turkey are playing major roles in promotion of such relations.

Isfahan's Governor General Abbas Rezaei, for his part, said that the shared values between Iran and Pakistan are not limited to their language, as the more important commonalities are their religion and the fraternity among people of the two countries.
