The head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), Ali Akbar Salehi said, “We clearly announce people that we are strongly moving to advance nuclear goals”.
During his visit to the construction process of Iran and West Asia’s first ion therapy hospital in Alborz province, Salehi said, “We have taken important steps in exploration and extraction. We’ve also succeeded at detect more than 80% of Iran’s mineral resources with domestic force, presenting multiple services to Ministry of Oil”.
“Iran’s ion therapy hospital in Alborz is being constructed in a 10-hectare land and only six other hospitals of this type have been built around the world”.
He also announced that some nuclear technologies have been localized in Iran and “the project of constructing two 1000-megawatt power plants have been started since two years ago with a $10 billion budget”.
Iranian President’s Chief of Staff Mahmoud Vaezi said if no progress is seen in the upcoming talks with the European parties to the 2015 nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), Tehran will certainly take the third step in reducing nuclear commitments.
The power generation capacity of Iran’s thermal power plants has increased by 9,000 megawatts (9GW) over the past six years, IRIB reported, citing the portal of Energy Ministry (known as Paven).
The nominal capacity of electricity generation at Iranian power plants has reached 84,795 megawatts [84.795 gigawatts (GW)], IRNA reported on Wednesday.
Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Seyed Abbas Mousavi highlighted the continued failure of the European parties to the 2015 nuclear deal to live up to their obligations, and said the Islamic Republic is planning the third step to reduce its nuclear commitments.
The head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, Ali Akbar Salehi said, “Fordow nuclear site is one of the most active nuclear sites of Iran and its cooperation with different states, such as Russia is underway within the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), providing infrastructural scientific and technical needs of nuclear industry and other industries”.
The concrete placement for construction of the second unit of a nuclear power plant near Iran’s southern port city of Bushehr will begin next month, the head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) announced.
