Senior MP Urges World Powers to Recognize Iran’s N. Capabilities
TEHRAN (FNA)- The world powers will sustain heavy losses if they refuse to recognize Iran’s nuclear capabilities, a senior Iranian legislator underscored.
Speaking to the Islamic republic news agency on Sunday, Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi lauded the achievements of young Iranian experts to independently produce the required fuel for the country’s nuclear power plants and the installation of 20-percent nuclear fuel plates at the Tehran Research Reactor to produce radio-medicine for the treatment of 800,000 patients without any assistance from the US and its allies.
“The key message of such measures and achievements is that the Islamic Republic of Iran has fully mastered the nuclear know-how and unless the Group 5+1 (Britain, China, France, Russia, the US plus Germany) recognizes the reality of Iran’s nuclear capabilities, they will incur losses,” he stated.
The Iranian legislator called on the nuclear powers to avoid the policy of confrontation with respect to Iran’s nuclear energy program and embark on constructive interactions with Tehran.
In February, Iranian scientists loaded the first batch of its home-made uranium rods into the Tehran research reactor.
Iranian experts in January successfully tested the first home-made uranium rod to fuel the Tehran research reactor.
The achievement came while the western states refrained from supplying nuclear fuel to the research reactor in violation of their NPT (Non-Proliferation Treaty) undertakings.
Iranian experts produced the fuel rod for the Tehran research reactor in December after enriching uranium to the purity level of 20% and it took them almost a month to carry out the initial tests.
