The Islamic Republic of Iran has succeeded in entering the phase of industrial nuclear fuel production following its significant technological progress at Natanz enrichment facility, head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Agency (IAEO) Gholam Reza Aghazadeh said on Monday. After it succeeded in completing two cascades of 164 centrifuges, Iran has now gained full access to the nuclear fuel production cycle know-how.
Aghazadeh made the remarks during a ceremony held in Natanz nuclear facility for announcing the controversial good news of President Ahmadinejad.
The ceremony was attended by Iranian president, high-ranking officials and MPs as well as more than 45 ambassadors of foreign countries to Tehran and representatives of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) Troika.
Political analysts described Iran’s entrance to the phase of semi-industrial nuclear fuel production as “a no return point” establishing the Islamic Republic as a nuclear state.
