The Islamic Republic of Iran and Sri Lanka on Saturday called for expansion of mutual academic and scientific cooperation.

Speaking at a meeting with chancellors of the Sri Lankan universities in Colombo on Saturday, Khosravi briefed the participants on Iran's latest scientific achievements.

During the meeting, the two sides agreed to broaden cooperation including exchange of college students, setting up short and long term training courses and workshops as well as scientific cooperation between both Iranian and Sri Lankan universities.

In the recent years, Iranian scientists and experts have taken wide leaps in scientific, medical and technological fields.

In February, former Iran's President Ahmadinejad hailed the young people of the country for their astonishing scientific and technological progress, and said Iran's scientific production has increased more than seven times during the last 7 years.

"Iran achieves scientific productions, glory and success on a daily basis and the country's scientific production has grown 7 times during the last 7 years," Ahmadinejad said, addressing a ceremony to honor Iran's academic elites in Tehran at the time.

He appreciated the Iranian young people for their efforts and achievements in technological and scientific fields, and said, "If a nation decides to make progress, God will facilitate its move." (FAR News)
