Iran Offers Nuclear Expertise to Neighboring Countries, AEOI Chief Affirms

During the third Iranian-Arab Dialogue Conference in Tehran from May 12-14, Behrouz Kamalvandi, the spokesman for the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), declared Iran's readiness to share its nuclear advancements with other nations, particularly neighboring states.

Iran (IMNA) - Highlighting Iran's 50-year history and expertise in the nuclear field, Kamalvandi expressed willingness to collaborate extensively in transferring nuclear knowledge and technology to all countries, emphasizing a spirit of cooperation and friendship.

Despite facing Western sanctions, Iran has made significant strides in uranium enrichment and radiopharmaceutical production. Kamalvandi condemned Israel's actions targeting Iranian scientists and sabotaging nuclear progress, underscoring the nation's sacrifices to establish its nuclear industry.

Addressing negotiations with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Kamalvandi stressed the importance of technical discussions within the Safeguards Agreement framework, lamenting the overshadowing of technical matters by political issues.

Iran currently operates one nuclear power plant and is constructing two more to achieve a target of 20,000 megawatts of nuclear electricity in the next two decades. Plans to expand nuclear power generation align with efforts to bolster national energy security.

Mohammad Eslami, the AEOI head, recently announced intentions to build additional nuclear plants and enhance power generation capacity during a visit to Iran's sole nuclear facility in the south. The Bushehr nuclear power plant has successfully contributed to the country's electricity production.

Despite facing challenges from Western powers, Iran remains committed to its peaceful nuclear energy program as a Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty signatory. The 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) demonstrated Iran's compliance and peaceful intentions, yet the deal's future remains uncertain following the US withdrawal and reimposition of sanctions in 2018.
