QuoteBot: Nano Iran

iranflagDr. Maleki: "From Iran's point of view, the nuclear issue is not a real problem. This is part of the overall process of development which is going on in all parts of our society, like nanotechnology, biotechnology, IT and so on ..."

Mr. Kian: "It is amazing to hear about such claims as progress in nanotechnology in a country where there is widespread unemployment, poverty, drug addiction, prostitution, so many women's issues and, finally, political repression and coercion."

From a Voice of America exchange between Dr. Abbas Maleki of Sharif University in Tehran, currently a Harvard Research Fellow, and Bijan Kian, a businessman associated with the American Council on Foreign Relations, as reported in The Wall Street Journal.
