Tabnak – While remaining committed to the 2015 nuclear deal with 6 world power, Iran has made it clear that it won’t let its nuclear progress be restricted by foreign pressures. In this vein, the Islamic Republic will reportedly unveil new nuclear achievements in the near future.
In this vein, Spokesman for the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) said the country is going to unveil 112 achievements of Iranian nuclear scientists in April.
Speaking to reporters on Saturday, Behrouz Kamalvandi said the major achievements to go on display on April 9 will demonstrate the country’s breakthroughs in nuclear material exploration and extraction, nuclear fuel cycle, technical systems, laser technology, and power plant construction.
He said unveiling of the new products would remind the enemy that the sanctions could never undermine Iran.
In 2018, the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran unveiled 83 homegrown achievements in the nuclear industry in celebration of the National Nuclear Technology Day.
In last year’s ceremony, President Hassan Rouhani inaugurated a number of the outstanding projects including the process of transferring the first shipment of yellow cake (a type of uranium concentrate powder), produced in a factory in the city of Ardakan, to a Uranium Conversion Facility (UCF) in Isfahan.
In recent years, Iranian scientists have made remarkable progress in the field of peaceful nuclear technology despite the sanctions imposed by the West. It will be the 13th year Iran celebrates a national day to mark its achievements in the nuclear industry.
US President Donald Trump withdrew Washington in May last year from the landmark Iran nuclear agreement, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), reached between Iran and the P5+1 group of countries in 2015, and decided to re-impose unilateral sanctions against Tehran.
Under the deal, Iran undertook to put limits on its nuclear program in exchange for the removal of nuclear-related sanctions.
Trump's administration announced re-imposition of the “toughest” sanctions ever against Iran's banking and energy sectors with the aim of cutting off the country's oil sales and crucial exports.
Despite Washington's withdrawal, Iran has not left the deal yet, but stressed that the remaining signatories to the agreement have to work to offset the negative impacts of the US pullout for Iran if they want Tehran to remain in it.
This comes as earlier this month the head of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) once again reaffirmed Iran's compliance with its nuclear-related commitments under the JCPOA.
"Iran is implementing its nuclear-related commitments under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action,” Yukiya Amano said in his introductory statement to the IAEA's Board of Governors in Vienna on March 4.
