According to political scientists, America is trying by all means to infringe on Iran’s rights. First, the Americans imposed sanctions in various fields of activity, and then they refused to issue visas to a number of members of the delegation accompanying Iranian President Hassan Rouhani to the UN General Assembly in New York. This, according to experts and the presidential administration of Iran, «is contrary to diplomatic obligations that the US government formally assumed as a member of the UN and the host country». And now the US authorities have switched to the field of education. For example, the White House is considering stopping federal funding for an educational program conducted by the University of North Carolina and Duke University, where foreign languages and the Middle East are studied. According to officials from the Ministry of Education, led by Betsy Davos, both universities use their educational courses to promote ideology and emphasize the positive aspects of the Muslim faith, but not Christianity and Judaism. Thus, Washington is trying to limit the «voice of the Islamic Republic of Iran» and make it the so-called «outcast», demonstrating to it its power and superiority.
