Iranian FM: Country does not need foreign nuclear specialists
Today, at least 2,000 young nuclear scientists are operating in Iran, so the country does not need experts from other countries, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast was quoted as saying by the newspaper's website mardomsalari.com.
"Iran's young nuclear scientists are developing new nuclear technology," he said. "Theretofore, there is no need to involve specialists from other countries."
The U.S. and other Western countries accuse Iran of developing nuclear weapons for military purposes under the guise of peaceful nuclear energy program. Tehran denies the charges, saying that its nuclear program is aimed solely at meeting the country's electricity needs. The U.N. Security Council adopted six resolutions in connection with the suspension of Iran's nuclear program. Four involve the use of economic sanctions on Iran.
