Iran Studies at Afghanistan’s Kunar University

Syed Jamaluddin Afghan University in Asadabad, capital of Afghanistan's eastern Kunar Province will open a new academic department in cooperation with Iran.
During his visit to Afghanistan's eastern provinces of Kunar and Nangarhar, Iran's cultural attaché Reza Maleki Abdolabadi met with the Afghan university (also known as Kunar University) president Mir Ahmad Hamed, IRNA reported.
The two sides discussed cultural collaboration in scientific and academic areas, including exchange of professors to establish the Iran Department at the university.
Abdolabadi emphasized the cultural commonalities between the two neighboring countries and expressed Iran's determination to further develop ties. "Based on the memorandum of understanding for cooperation between the Iranian Embassy in Kabul and Kunar University, the Iran Department will be established and equipped," he said.
The Afghan university has five faculties and 20 departments with 4,000 students in different majors. "We seek greater cooperation with the Iranian Embassy," said Hamed, who will be in charge of the new department.
Syed Jamaluddin Afghan University is named after the 19th Century Islamic ideologist Jamal ad-Din al-Afghani.
Initially, the university had three faculties: education, theology and agriculture. It expanded over the years to a credible regional center of higher learning.
With economics and computer science included later, the university now has five faculties and 21 degree programs.
