Velayati: Islamic Medical Science Owes to Iranian’s

Monday, September 17, 2018 - 15:47

The head of Islamic Azad University board of founders and trustees has stated that unfortunately, Western countries are considering themselves as the source of sciences which is a colonial view.

According to an ISCA report, Dr. Velayati explained that while they had the basic culture, beliefs and religion, western countries claim that the origin of science is Ancient Greece and have been denying other countries’ abilities and advancements, especially Asian countries.

On the side line of Research, Educational and Cultural Workshop for Clinical Assistants, held in Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences, Dr. Velayati presented some facts about the history of medical science in ancient Iran and noted that Iran has been successful in the field of medical science, as the Gondishapur University had been one of the most reputable university in the world.

In a press conference held in Tehran on September 15, Dr. Velayati discussed Iran’s foreign policy strategies and said that the contemporary East is no more like the ideological East that used to exist decades ago, noting that the communist Kremlin has collapsed and a democratic Russia has emerged, Tasnim reported.

Stressing the need for Iran’s “strategic view” about the East, Velayati said the entire world has now the same outlook.

Asked about the economic war against Iran, he said what matters most at the moment is the sale of oil, referring to China and India as Iran’s two biggest oil customers.

China and Russia have guaranteed to purchase Iran’s oil, Velayati added, saying efforts are underway to maintain the capacity of Iranian oil exports.

Hailing the close cooperation between Tehran and Moscow in the defense industry and nuclear energy projects, Velayati said Russian President Vladimir Putin had assured him in a recent meeting in Russia that Moscow stands by its powerful neighbor Iran.

Asked about Iran’s purported focus on only Russia and China and negligence of ties with other Eastern states like Japan, Velayati said the Islamic Republic shapes its foreign policy according to priorities.

He said Russia has a heavy political weight and has vetoed a proposed anti-Iranian UN Security Council resolution on Yemen, while China is of greater significance in economic and trade terms.

Highlighting Iran’s openness to ties with the whole world, except with the US and Israel, Velayati said Europe seems to lack the power to act independently of the United States.
