Iran and Russia are expanding their collaborations in the fields of technology and medicine, Iran’s Vice President for Science and Technology Sorena Sattari says. 
During a Thursday videoconference with Aleksandr Mikhaylovich Sergeyev, president of the Russian Academy of Sciences, in Tehran, Sattari discussed ways of further expanding collaborations, IRNA reported.
Sattari added that Iran’s ties with Russia started to strengthen since 2015 when the former minister of education and science of Russian Federation, Andrei Fursenko, visited Tehran. 
“Fortunately, it has been a good start and the bilateral relationship is on the path to development,” he said.
Noting that Iranian universities and scientific centers have been more connected with their European and North American counterparts, Sattari said, “It is time to expand our ties with the east and forge a productive technological and scientific connection with Russian academic centers as well.”
