Tehran, Islamabad Expanding Scientific Ties

Iran and Pakistan have agreed to expand bilateral scientific ties.
The agreement was reached during a meeting between Pakistani Minister for Science and Technology Rana Tanveer Hussain and his Iranian counterpart Mansour Gholami in Tehran on Jan. 17.
According to the Science Ministry’s website, a taskforce for developing academic collaborations between the two countries has been formed.  
The University of Sistan-Baluchestan in the eponymous southeastern province that borders Afghanistan and Pakistan will spearhead the collaborations.
During the meeting, Hussain said, “Pakistan is keen to expand its academic collaborations with Iran. Biotechnology, energy and oceanography are some of the possible joint research topics."
Based on another agreement between the two ministers, Iran will help Pakistan establish science and technology parks.
