Iran PressIran News: Speaking at the sidelines of a ceremony to commemorate prominent scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh at Shahid Beheshti University, Mansour Gholami added that in some courses, Iran's status Is perfect though pressurized by some dominant powers.

Iranian Science Minister noted that Iran's nuclear industry activity was deeply peaceful and tried to produce medicines, but enemies are trying to put it another way round.

Mansour Gholami stressed that Iran had trained, skilled, educated, and specialist human resources and could fully meet the country's needs. Hence, scientists were a precious investment and should not be ignored.

Science Minister added:" We live in a world that domineering powers have undermined morality and try to fade it and to reach a condition in which they do whatever they can."

"In this era, people are more vigilant, clever, and more informed; any news spreads as quickly as possible even in the distant parts of the world, people can not be kept in ignorance," Gholami said.

"In the scientific field, we see how scientists devoting their lives to make people's livelihood better have been assassinated," Gholami underlined.

The world's scientific association's motto is science should bring peace and welfare for all, but some countries which consider their policy democratic remained shamefully silent for this state terrorism and did not condom it, said the minister.
