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. 1024px-Kernkraftwerk_Grafenrheinfeld_-_2013

“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.

India plans to launch an “Understanding India” programme in China to “demystify” the country and create a better understanding of it.

Despite being immediate neighbours, India and China lack people-to-people contact and cultural exchange.

Indian Council of Cultural Relations President Vinay Sahasrabuddhe, who was in Beijing to attend the World Congress of Philosophy, said that by watching Bollywood and reading websites one can know India only superficially.

India and China on Saturday agreed on a joint economic project in Afghanistan, sources said after a two-day summit between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping here.

“India cannot be understood by simply reading books and visiting websites. India is an experience,” Sahasrabuddhe said.

“In most big countries like China, we are trying to have some kind of ‘Understanding India’ programme which will be a structural programme.”

The Rajya Sabha MP said that India was a “riddle” to the people outside because of its diversity and coexistence of masses despite the economic disparity in the country.

“We would like to demystify the idea of India through this programme,” Sahasrabuddhe added.

He also said the Indian cultural centres across the world that don’t have any name will be named after Indian monk Swami Vivekananda.

“We respect everybody. There are Nehru centres; there are Mahatma Gandhi centres; there are Tagore centres but there are centres that did not have any names… so we thought it was fit to name all those under Swami Vivekananda because he symbolizes Indian culture in a multiple ways. He is an inspirational hero,” said Sahasrabuddhe.

There are 37 Indian cultural centres in the world. (IANS)
