Dr. Salehi, President's deputy and AEOI head, recently, in an exclusive interview with the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting Corporation, announced the following points:
-Despite the U.S exit from JCPOA, no problem has occurred in the processes of excavation, research-development and construction of new power plants. Related activities such as radiopharmaceutical production or building of specialized function hospitals continue unabated.
-Unilateral sanctions imposed by the U.S has left no effect on Iran's nuclear activities and a major part of our projects are either self-dependent or rely on countries such as Russia which has firmly abided by its commitments.
-The second Bushehr power plant is progressing and it is hoped that up to the next 6 years will reach operational phase and, upon 2 years after that, third plant will enter the related cycle.
-Dr. Salehi added that, enrichment of new elements such as Xenon and Tellurium has also become possible with the Russian assistance that puts Iran among the few countries possessing such a technology.
