Abbasi: Iran Building 3000 New-Generation Uranium Enriched Centrifuges
Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Fereydoun Abbasi says the Islamic Republic is building 3,000 new-generation uranium enrichment centrifuges.
“The [construction of the] final production line of these centrifuges has concluded and the earlier generations of these centrifuges that have a low efficiency will soon be phased out,” Abbasi said.
The Iranian private sector has successfully designed 360-megawatt nuclear power reactors, Abbasi said on Sunday, adding, “We are ready to cooperate with foreign parties in the construction of power reactors and so far we have had proposals from Russia and some Western countries in this regard.”
Iran will announce other new achievements in the future as “political backup” in the next rounds of talks with the P5+1 group of world powers, said Abbasi.
Iran rejects the US-“Israeli” allegation, arguing that, as a committed signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), it is entitled to develop nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.
