He said that many underlying causes of these differences are rooted in the long history of development of such nations and social, cultural and economic variables, historical and political elements, international relations and geographical factors.

Differences in the scientific and technological infrastructure and in the popularization of science and technology in the two groups of countries are the most important cases of differentials in social and economic levels, Dr. Ismaili said.
