Tehran, YJC. Farhadi slammed powerful states for their discriminatory approach to science, stating that Iran is one of the biggest victims of such approach.

Iranian Minister of Science, Researches and Technology Mohammad Farhadi who was addressing a conference by the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) science ministers held in Tehran on Monday, described "scientific apartheid” as one of the problems afflicting the world today.

"It is a pity that the our country is one of the biggest victims of the discriminatory approach that is adopted by the powerful countries and has restricted the progress of the developing world toward science, technology and innovation,” he added, referring to the sanctions imposed against Tehran over its peaceful nuclear program.

The science and technology minister further noted that in the meantime, Iran is "an undeniable example” of a country that has broken the barriers and indigenized science and technology.

He further pointed to the Islamic Republic’s achievements in diverse areas of science, saying that despite all the restrictions and "cruel sanctions”, the country is progressing in nanotechnology, biotechnology, medicine, medical engineering, genetics, aerospace, and nuclear technology.
