He added that being unique as well as compiling by prominent Iranian scientists, is the great difference between Iranian scientific outputs and productions with other countries in the region.

Dr. Tehranchi expressed IAU’s readiness for creating scientific and academic relations with universities in Syria, also noted that the extent and sub-sections interactions must be evaluated, supported and guided in order to plan new ways for scientific collaboration.
