The acting president of Islamic Azad University has stated that Iran, Russia, China and India can create an independent scientific movement to lead the world.

During the Iran-China joint scientific workshop, hosted by Islamic Azad University, Dr. Mohammad Mehdi Tehranchi spoke of the scientific authority and the world’s leadership in relation among Iran, China and the U.S and stated that some analyze these relations politically while “I’m analyzing the issue from the perspective of a science policy maker,” ISCA reports.

He explained that science and technology have been focused in special areas and mainly after the World War II, these areas imposed their sciences to the world. After dropping atomic bomb, the U.S imposed an absolute dominance to the world, also scientific domination was begun during cold war era by sending a person to the space in 1957.

Dr. Tehranchi noted that in the second half of the twentieth century, America planned to lead the world scientifically based on a document regulated in 1945. He added that based on a British scientific document, the U.S has been examining its global scientific position and came to this conclusion that China is threatening America scientifically and technologically.

The IAU acting president noted that China’s scientific and technological progress as well as Islamic Republic of Iran and some other countries have become the U.S main fear. Mentioned the article released in Nature Magazine in 2005, Dr. Tehranchi said that scientific authority is emerging again in Iran which it cannot be stopped only by creating political differences and imposing gradual sanctions.

Dr. Tehranchi emphasized that due to the West’s point of view which sees world leadership based on scientific authority, so it acts against the scientific progress of the independent countries.

As Dr. Tehranchi noted, Iran is being among the top 10 countries in terms of the population of higher education, therefore, Iran, China, India and Russia can create an independent scientific movement in the form of an agreement.
