The Minister of Sciences in Rouhani’s cabinet emphasized that all mixed gatherings in Iran’s universities are banned.
“No university can issue permits to hold mixed events, and even if these gatherings are scientific in nature, they must be held under complete supervision. The necessary regulations will be reformed for this particular subject. However despite all this, I have to emphasize that no university has the permit, or can issue a permit, to hold mixed gatherings,” he added.
