He went on to underscore the need for independent countries to adopt collective policies to confront this trend.
President also stressed that as long as politicians in developing countries failed to make any reforms and establish a proper link between science and industries, the brain drain will continue in their countries.
He said extreme poverty and unemployment in developing countries which is also invigorated in turn by an impotent global political and economic system paves the way for growing extremism and violence in the world.
President said those who are imposing sanctions against Iran as well as the ones who are running projects to make Iran's nuclear program a matter of security, are both well aware of the real objectives of Iranian nation and government.
The president also stressed that in the today world nobody could ever claim that Iran's nuclear program is non-peaceful.
He said extreme poverty and unemployment in developing countries which is also invigorated in turn by an impotent global political and economic system paves the way for growing extremism and violence in the world.
