Baku. Suleyman Farzaliyev – APA. “During our recent visit to Azerbaijan we concerned ourselves with the problems of the Iranians studying there. We are not satisfied with the state of the Iranians studying medicine in Azerbaijan,” Iran’s Deputy Minister of Health Dr. Mahammadali Mohaggigi said, APA reports quoting Mehr. He said while visiting Azerbaijan in February Health Minister of Iran Marziya Vahid Destcerdi met with the Iranian students, concerned herself with their condition and it appeared that they had enough problems.

According to Deputy Minister, as they are not satisfied with the level of education of the Iranian students in Azerbaijan, they consider the diplomas of Azerbaijan Medical University invalid.
“The names of all Azerbaijani educational institutions have been removed from the list of the Health Ministry of Iran,” he said.
Mohaggigi said no one was sent from Iran to study medicine in Azerbaijan, the process had been stopped.

Deputy Minister also expressed the ministry’s concern over the demand from the Iranian female students to take off the veil while having their photos taken.

Mohaggi said that they were very worried about this situation and that they would take appropriate measures for the solution to educational problems of Iranian students: “We will convey our students studied abroad to the country according to the educational laws”. Head of teaching department of Azerbaijan Medical University Nasimi Gasimov told APA that there are Iranian students studying at our university: “As a rule, Iranian students confirm their diplomas after returning. According to non-official information, Iran sends a lot of students to Armenia and without any problem on attendance recognize their diplomas. But most of the Iranian students studying in Azerbaijan don’t return after education and leave for European countries. We know that their diplomas are being recognized in Finland, Germany and Switzerland. And most of the students can accept their diplomas as valid after returning to Iran”.

Gasimov noted that formerly Iranian students studying in Azerbaijan weren’t admitted to examinations for accepting their diplomas as valid: “But then Iranian ambassador to Azerbaijan and adviser of the embassy visited our university many times, and then Iranian students were admitted to examination there. Iranian students study better than any other foreign students at Medical University. Lately, there have been opened many medical faculties in Iran. May be, that is why, Iran has spread such information. But on the other hand, most of the Iranian students studying at Azerbaijan Medical University are Azerbaijanis. They open eyes of Azerbaijanis living in Iran after returning. And that is why Iran’s such statement is political maneuver and blackmail”.
