U.S. Sanctions No Obstacle To Iran Scientific Growth
TEHRAN (FNA) - The executive secretary of the ongoing International Iran-Europe CTO-Caspian Meeting in Mashhad city in Northeastern Iran underscored that the U.S. sanctions have not left any negative impacts on the country’s scientific growth.
“We have succeeded in holding this important congress with the participation of foreign and prominent guests despite sanctions,” Behzad Alizadeh told reporters on Thursday.
“While many countries are trying to sanction Iran, holding such congresses and presence of foreign guests indicate that the sanctions have been ineffective on the country’s scientific growth,” he added.
Mashhad city in Khorassan Razavi province is hosting the 2nd International Congress of Iranian and European Heart Physicians for 3 days.
Dr. Fereydoun Nouhi, the director of the Iranian Cardiology Association, announced in a press conference at the central office of Astan Quds Razavi in Tehran earlier that “the 2nd Iran-Europe CTO-Caspian Meeting will be held at Razavi Hospital, a subsidiary of Astan Quds Razavi, in two very important areas of congenital, structural and valve diseases, as well as chronic obstruction of the vessels on December 5 to 8”.
