COLOMBO (News1st): The delisting of three Russian universities as recognized institutions was an accident, the Sri Lanka Medical Council’s Chairman has said.

“A person had removed it from the website assuming that the delisting has been approved,” SLMC chairman Prof. Harendra de Silva told News1st on Sunday.

He pointed out that the delisting of a university must be approved by the committee appointed to study the institutions and the SLMC.

“The decision will then be sent to the minister in charge. It is the minister who will make the final decision,” de Silva explained.

However, a letter sent by the SLMC registrar, as seen by News1st, has shown that the council has rejected the recognition of three Russian universities.

They are the Pirogrov Russian National Research Medical University, the Tver State Medical University, and the People’s Friendship University of Russia.
