SHAFAQNA (International Shia News Association)-Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) says the enemy has no choice but to interact with the Islamic Republic.
Ali Akbar Salehi said on Friday that given the technological achievements of Iran’s nuclear scientists, “the enemy has no option but to interact with the Islamic Republic.”
The Iranian official added that the Islamic Republic has always come out with new achievements despite attempts by the enemy to restrict its progress.
Salehi emphasized that Iran would work for more breakthroughs in the field of nuclear technology, particularly in the areas of agriculture, health and medicine within the next three years.
He noted that the country is set to sign an agreement for the construction of two new nuclear power plants in the southern province of Bushehr.
In September 2013, Iran officially took over from Russia the first unit of its first 1,000-megawatt nuclear power plant in Bushehr for two years. The initial construction of the Bushehr facility began in 1975 by German companies, but the work was halted following the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
After signing a deal on the construction of nuclear plants in 1992, Iran and Russia reached an agreement in 1995 to complete the power plant.
