Kamalvandi talks about 4 areas to divide Iran’s nuclear technology … What is it?

The spokesman for the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, Behrouz Kamalvandi, says the construction of nuclear facilities is a “necessary and integral part of the country’s needs,” and explains that his country has achieved important achievements in this area.

The spokesperson of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, Behrouz Kamalvandi, considered the construction of nuclear facilities a “necessary and integral part of the country’s needs”, and emphasized that “Iran did not only have the nuclear fuel cycle, but also a lot of progress in other fields related to nuclear technology. “

Kamalvandi, who is also the assistant head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization for International, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs, said today, Sunday, in an article on the progress made in the country’s nuclear industry: 16 years of acquiring the potential for uranium enrichment, we are celebrating National Nuclear Technology Day. “.

He added: “Today, the Islamic Republic of Iran has not only become a full owner of the nuclear fuel cycle, but has also made great strides in other areas related to nuclear technology.”

Kamalvandi continued, “The progress in Iran’s nuclear technology can be divided into 4 basic areas, which are” radiation uses “,” energy “,” fuel production “and” research and development “, noting that it is not limited to centrifuges not.

The Iranian official noted the achievements made in the field of nuclear industry, including finding a line for the manufacture of a radioactive drug capsule “Iodine-131” used in the treatment of cancer, the use of nuclear radiation for sterilization, the repair of seeds and making seeds resistant to a lack of water, and the use of gamma rays to treat honey wasp venom for uses.medical, as well as the development of products associated with heavy water.

He believed that among the achievements of the efforts of specialized local cadres despite the imposed ban, Iran was able to “produce software to supply the Bushehr nuclear power plant, and a tracking system and direct reading of the radiation dose of the plant’s workers, to prevent an overdose case of poisoning. “

On the fuel cycle, he said: “After owning the fuel cycle represented by exploration for uranium and tullium, the exchange of raw materials into concentrated materials, yellow cake, enrichment, fuel production and the management of waste fuel, we were able to achieve stable production. . zirconium, a material also used in the aerospace and automotive industries. “

He also referred to the production of “silicide” fuel page, the production of “Khandab” reactor fuel in Arak for heavy water, and its testing in the Tehran Research Reactor, in addition to the production of 1,000 “IR6” centrifuges and a significant number of “IR2M” and “IR2M” centrifuges IR4, and the development of devices for measuring the purity of “tellurium” and the possibility of quantum coding up to a distance of 7 km.

Kamalvandi said that “this degree of focus on the development of nuclear technology, which could save the country hundreds of millions of dollars, and benefit many industries from it, comes at a time when Western countries are focusing on raising fears of increased enrichment in Iran. , especially around allegations of nuclear weapons production in Iran. ” nuclear weapons, and in this way try to deprive us of access to such a wide range of technologies as important as enrichment. “

He added, “Do not forget that the value of one milligram of water amounts to tens of thousands of dollars, and in addition to its economic value, it is important to use it in radioactive substances, and it is covered by the anti-human ban.”

Kamalvandi confirmed the continuation of the construction of the “Darkhuen” nuclear power plant in Khuzestan province with a capacity of 360 megawatts, saying that “the plan is to generate 10,000 megawatts of nuclear power, and remember that nuclear plants are not as is considered a luxury, but rather an essential and integral part of the country’s need. ”

Earlier today, the Speaker of Iran’s Islamic Consultative Assembly, Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf, hoped that the valuable balance of advanced nuclear knowledge and technology would lead to a good agreement in the nuclear negotiations that would benefit the economic interests of the Iranian people.

He stressed that the current parliament, as in the past, reaffirms this principle, which is that “the nuclear negotiations must lead to the realization of secure, sustainable and tangible economic interests for all the proud Iranian people.”

In the same context, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi on Saturday unveiled nine new nuclear achievements, coinciding with National Nuclear Technology Day, declaring: “We will not link our research and studies in the peaceful nuclear field to the desires and views of others.”

He added that Iran’s possession of technology and science was an “indisputable right”, and stressed that its government would “support this research.”
