Dr. Nayer Azam Khoshkholgh Sima: “We are responsible to inform our society that GMOs are safe”, 9th October, 2017

    Dr. Nayer Azam Khoshkholgh Sima, Director General of Agricultural Biotechnology Research Institute of Iran (ABRII), pointing out the admiration ABRII’s scientists receive for their achievements, asserted that in addition to the GM rice and cotton, GM potato, maize and rapeseed will hopefully be produced in near future which demonstrates the successfulness of the projects carried out in ABRII at the meeting held in the Department of Genetic Engineering and Biosafety.

    According to the Public Relations Office of ABRII, Dr. Khoshkholgh declared that GM crops have met with public opposition over the past years. While this opposition and discrepancy can benefit some, we are responsible to inform our society that GMOs are safe, and that they bring environmental benefits by making agriculture more sustainable.

   Dr. Khoshkholgh emphasized on voicing concerns by national members of parliament, scientists and those worrying about the GM crops in order to be helped by our researchers to overcome or decrease their concerns.

     She highlighted the fact that scientists in ABRII are concentrating on achieving the goals of their research, finding out the causes obstructing the development of the projects and strengthening their competence. Accordingly, the group is supposed to be thoroughly dedicated to pursue the objectives leading to develop Iran.
