Tehran: China will build two new nuclear power plants (NPP) in Iran, the media reported quoting Ali Akbar Salehi, the head of the Atomic Energy organisation of Iran.
“We will simultaneously launch construction of four new nuclear power plants in the country in the next two-three years. We plan to engage more than 20,000 workers and engineers in this large-scale construction,” Salehi said.
Iran currently has stores amounting to around 90 tonnes of heavy water and around seven-eight tonnes of Uranium, he said.
“In accordance with the joint action plan (on Iran’s nuclear programme), the future of stored uranium will be decided in the next four-five months,” Salehi said.
On Monday, the UN Security Council unanimously adopted a resolution in support of the agreement on Iran’s nuclear programme. All international sanctions will be lifted from Iran in 10 years if Tehran fulfills all conditions agreed with the P5+1 group of international mediators in Vienna.
The resolution also envisages easing sanctions against Iran after the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) submits a report confirming Tehran’s compliance with the terms of the deal.
The UN Security Council also reinforced the mechanism of restoring all restrictions in case Iran violates the terms of the agreement.
