Dr. Salehi also added the further important points as follows:

-In the health and medical treatment sector advanced steps have been taken with respect to radiopharmaceutical production with special priority. Design and construction of sophisticated measuring equipment's have taken place in this regard.

Fortunately, in the last year, digging operation for the construction of units 2 and 3 of the Bushehr power plant with a volume of 1 million cubic meters was completed.

-With respect to the sensitive nuclear safety issue, according to the contents of JCPOA annex 3 very fruitful cooperation with active countries was placed in the related agenda.

-We have meticulously observed our JCPOA commitments and IAEA, until present, has 10 times reiterated on the abiding commitment of Iran to the JCPOA deal.

Unfortunately, some sides in spite of their clear admission of the agreement, have moved in a reverse direction, and created a non-confidence atmosphere.

All sides must simultaneously benefit from the JCPOA outcome, and it is not fair that merely one side chooses its interests while others neglect their accepted obligations.

With the help of Almighty God and national solidarity, we will move in the right path to secure our national interests, and verbal threats or negative propaganda of ill intensioned sides will not undermine the nations will and determination.
