Tehran, Baghdad to expand ties in education sector

Tehran, the capital of Iran, and Baghdad, the capital of Iraq, are set to strengthen their ties in the education sector, with the aim of fostering greater cooperation and exchange between the two countries.

The agreement was signed during a recent visit by the Iranian Minister of Education, Dr. Mohsen Haji-Mirzaei, to Baghdad, where he met with his Iraqi counterpart, Dr. Muhammad Ameri-Hakim. The two ministers discussed ways to increase cooperation between the two countries in the field of education, including the exchange of students, teachers, and education materials.

The agreement is seen as a significant step forward in the development of relations between the two countries, which have a long and complex history. The two countries have been at odds in the past, particularly during the Iraq-Iran War, which lasted from 1980 to 1988. However, in recent years, there has been a gradual improvement in relations between the two countries, with the signing of several agreements on trade, energy, and other areas.

The education sector is a key area of focus for the two countries, with both Iran and Iraq recognizing the importance of education in building a stronger and more prosperous future. The agreement between Tehran and Baghdad will provide opportunities for students from both countries to study abroad, and for Iraqi students to study in Iranian universities.

The agreement will also provide opportunities for Iranian teachers to teach in Iraqi schools, and for Iraqi teachers to teach in Iranian schools. In addition, the agreement will facilitate the exchange of education materials and resources between the two countries.

The signing of the agreement is seen as a major milestone in the development of relations between the two countries, and is expected to have a significant impact on the education sector in both countries.
