TEHRAN (FNA)- A Kyrgyz scientific and cultural delegation departed for Iran on Tuesday in a bid to boost its knowledge of Iran’s scientific and cultural capacities.
The six-member Kyrgyz delegation comprising chancellors of universities and heads of scientific and cultural organizations is slated to hold talks with Iran’s scientific and cultural figures and visit the Central city of Isfahan during their weeklong stay in Iran.
The national libraries of Iran and Kyrgyzstan will also sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU) during the delegation’s visit.
Last month, Kyrgyz Minister of Science and Education Kanat Sadykov and Iran’s Ambassador to Bishkek Ali Najafi called for more educational and scientific cooperation between the two countries.
Sadykov underlined the historical and cultural commonalities between the two countries and Iran’s scientific progress, and called for more scientific and educational exchanges and close ties between universities and educational centers of the two friendly states.
He said that signing a cooperation document between the two countries can be an important step towards increasing the interactions between scientific and educational centers.
Najafi, for his part, expressed Iran’s readiness to strengthen mutual scientific cooperation with Bishkek.
Iran and Kyrgyzstan have recently expanded their bilateral ties and mutual cooperation in different fields.
Kyrgyzstan has around six million population, and is a neighbor to China, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan.
