Statement Concerning Travel by U.S. Scientists to Iran


 Print This

December 26, 2008 -- For eight years, the National Academies have endorsed and coordinated mutually beneficial exchanges and cooperation with our scientific colleagues in Iran. However, due to a recent incident, the NAS, NAE and IOM presidents announced today that they can no longer “sponsor or encourage scientists to visit Iran unless there are clear assurances that the personal safety of visiting scientists will be guaranteed…” It is our hope that assurances will soon be forthcoming that will permit our institution to resume scientific visits to Iran.
