Within the framework of the United Nations Academic Impact Initiative the leading Kazakhstani University, Al-Farabi KazNU, will open its branch in the Syrian capital, Damascus. This initiative was declared at the start of the celebration of the 1150th anniversary of Abu Nasr Al-Farabi, which was held in Almaty.
This initiative was discussed at a meeting of the Rector of KazNU, academician Galym Mutanov, with the President of the University of Damascus, Professor Mohammed Maher Kabakibi, who arrived at the celebration of the opening of the Year of Al-Farabi.
«We fully support this idea and will assist in the establishment and development of the branch. This will be a good example of international collaboration, and it will help to strengthen Kazakhstan’s bilateral relations with Syria in the field of science and education, and will also contribute to the conduct of in-depth studies of Al-Farabi’s heritage», – emphasized the Rector of the University of Damascus.
