Voicing the university's keenness to strengthen joint cooperation prospects with the US Embassy, Massad said this effort would secure opportunities for academic, scientific, and research engagements with US universities and educational institutions across various fields.

Wooster, for his part, said the embassy is keen to strengthen cooperation between the two countries in many fields, primarily on scientific, academic and cultural areas.

Cooperation with the university would provide opportunities for its students and faculty members to obtain scholarships to complete their academic studies, Wooster said.
