China embraces science partnership with Iran

The Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Iranian government have agreed to work more closely in science and technology, as part of a suite of trade and economic deals.

The agreement, reached on 23 January, will see the two countries cooperate in nanotechnology, renewable energy, cognitive sciences and biotechnology. It includes plans to set up exchange programmes and to build a technology park, an academy statement has said.

President of the academy Bai Chunli described the deal as a “milestone”. It follows the easing of international sanctions on Iran, after the country reached an international agreement to restrict its development of nuclear weapons technology.
