Iran Calls for Ending Scientific Discrimination in World
TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran urged for ending scientific discrimination in the world and nations' freedom to access advanced technologies.
"The nations should have free access to advanced sciences and technologies and observation of any type of discrimination and scientific monopoly, such as restricting such matters to a certain geographical region and depriving the nations in other regions, is totally denounced," Iranian Minister of Culture and Islamic Guidance Mohammad Hosseini said in Paris on Friday.

He also said the cultural characteristics of the year 2010 make it an important period of time, pointing out that Iran's prominent literary, scientific, and cultural personalities could bring the hearts and minds of the world nations closer to each other.
