“A large network of clubs around the world operate under UNESCO and we are looking to use this capacity to commercialize and create successful interactions in the field of technology in the country,” he added. Secretary-General of the Iranian National Commission for UNESCO, Hojjatollah Ayoubi, also told Iran Press that Tehran sought to use UNESCO’s capacity to grow and develop innovation and technology in the country.

"UNESCO seeks to use new technologies such as artificial intelligence to achieve justice in the world. Iran has a huge human resource capacity, and UNESCO may be able to help Iran use this capacity," added Ayoubi.
