Over 330,000 Afghan students studying in Iran

Tehran, Dec 8, IRNA – Iran is hosting Afghan students for more than 30 years and currently more than 330,000 Afghan students are studying in Iran, Deputy Chief Executive Officer of Afghanistan Mohammad Mohaqiq said on Monday.
  In a meeting with Iranian Education Minister Ali Asghar Fani, Mohaqiq said: “The cooperation of Iran’s Education Ministry has solved a part of the student’s problems. Despite the supports of Iran, the issues have not been solved completely and we need to expand our mutual collaboration with the Iranian government.”

“Immigration is complicated for Afghan families and students which is a result of the enemies’ occupation”, he added.

The Afghan official also met Iran’s Minister of Science, Research and Technology Mohammad Farhadi.

During the meeting the Iranian Minister stated that Iran would welcome Afghan elites in its universities and could offer them good services by granting them studying opportunities. He also emphasized on the acceptance of 500 annual fellowships of Afghan students in Iran.

Mohaqiq, leading a high-ranking delegation, arrived in Tehran on Saturday for a three-day official visit.
