No Halt in Work of Iran Nuclear Facilities: Salehi
Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Ali-Akbar Salehi said on Thursday evening that none of Iran’s nuclear facilities will be stopped.
Speaking to the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB), Salehi underscored that definitely Iran will also pursue fuel cycle.
Salehi also briefed the Iranian nation on the outcome of negotiations between Iran and the six world powers – known as the P5+1, on the country’s nuclear issue.
On April 2, Iran and the P5+1 group of world powers adopted a joint statement after marathon talks in Lausanne calling, among other things, for the removal of the UNSC sanctions against the Islamic Republic.
The statement was read out in a joint press conference in the Swiss city by the EU high representative, Federica Mogherini, and Zarif.
In the framework of the agreement, none of Iran’s nuclear facilities as well as the previous activities will be stopped, shut down or suspended and Iran’s nuclear activities in all its nuclear facilities including Natanz, Fordow, Isfahan and Arak will continue.
These comprehensive solutions will guarantee the continued enrichment program inside the Iranian territory and according to this, Iran will be allowed to go on with industrial production of nuclear fuel which is meant for running its nuclear power plants.
