Speaking to ANI, Sharad K Soni, Director, International Collaborations, JNU, said, "the Iranian delegation informed the Vice-Chancellor that there is much scope of Indian Studies in Tehran. We told them that the JNU would provide academic support to the (Tehran's Allameh Tabataba'i) University for the initiation of courses in this regard."
