President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has written separate letters to Science, Research, and Technology Minister Kamran Daneshju and Health Minister Marzieh Vahid-Dastjerdi, urging them to take measures necessary to prevent the implementation of the plan to separate the classes of male and female students at universities.

He also described the plan as "unwise".

The president also called on both ministries to refrain from indiscriminate retiring of university professors until the relevant bylaw is ratified.
