Netherlands imposes new restrictions on Iranian students

IRNA – Dutch government in a statement titled ‘Boosting Supervision on Students and Researchers from High-Risk Countries’ called for imposing new restrictions on the Iranian students.

IRNA quoted Dutch government’s website as saying that students from high-risk countries will be subject to further supervisions to prevent transfer of sensitive technologies to the countries intended by them.

Dutch government has subjected North Korean students to the regulation due to the UN sanctions and now in a discriminatory move, it wants to do the same with the Iranian students under the pretext of the alleged link to the Iranian ballistic missiles program.

Dutch government has taken advantage of EU’s sanctions against Iran to justify the decision.
