Iranian delegation from the University of Islamic Denominations (UID) met with Professor Sirozi, head of Indonesia’s Raden Fatah Islamic University in a bid to pursue a previously made agreement for educational cooperation between the two academic centers, reported Taqrib News Agency (TNA).
Professor Sirozi said a meeting between the deans of nine faculties from Indonesian religious university and visiting Iranian delegation will be held to detail the paragraphs and make practical proposals for a previous students swap agreement.
