Baku Azerbaijan Mar. 8
By Khalid Kazimov - Trend:
Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Ali Akbar Salehi said that Iran has answered the entire 18 questions posed by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
"We have answered the last 2 questions as well, but they keep saying that it is not enough. But luckily measures have been taken so that we will arrive at the desired conclusion on those two questions," said Salehi, IRIB news agency reported March 8.
Last week IAEA Secretary General Yukiya Amano in address to the agency's Board of Governors had said that Iran has not responded to some of the agency's 18 questions.
Based on the Iran-IAEA deal made in the second phase of technical talks with the aim of easing concerns and answering the IAEA questions on Iranian peaceful nuclear issue, Iran agreed to hand mutually-agreed information, and make arrangements for technical visit of Lashkarabad center.
Iran agreed to take seven "practical steps" in its cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency, according to a joint statement of Iran and the IAEA posted on the website of Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) in February.
Salehi also announced that Iran will launch its first domestically-developed nuclear fuel complex for the Bushehr power plant on April 9.
He then once more stated that Tehran and Moscow are going to cooperate on creating fuel for Iran's nuclear power plants.
In 1995 we signed an agreement with Russia where they vowed that in case Iran manages to build 4 fuel complexes every year, and a total of 26 complexes in 10 years, they would carry out the insertion operations at reactors.
In late 2014 Iran and Russia signed an agreement to build two new reactors at the Bushehr nuclear power plant, located in the south of the country.
