Iran’s Atomic Chief Blasts Trump’s Remarks as Illusion
“Trump is living in illusions,” Salehi told reporters on Sunday following a cabinet meeting, 3 days after he was reappointed as the AEOI head by President Hassan Rouhani.
Asked about his priorities as the AEOI head, he said, “My most important priority in the AEOI is making powerful progress in industrial nuclear activities.”
Salehi also described discovery and exploitation of nuclear materials, building nuclear propellants, research and development (R&D), production of a new generation of centrifuges and radio medicine as other priorities of the AEOI.
He expressed the hope that Iran would turn into a regional hub of radio medicine in West Asia in the next four years.
In relevant remarks in October, Salehi announced that the country is producing over 25 radio drugs and exporting them to a number of Asian, African and European countries.
“At present, we have more than 25 radio medicinal drugs and we export them to Egypt, Iraq and other nearby states as well as Germany,” Salehi told reporters on the sidelines of a forum in Tehran.
