Chairman of Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi said imposing several sanctions against Iran for its peaceful nuclear activities has led to blooming of domestic talents of Iranian scientists in all fields.
He made the remarks during a televised program on Tuesday evening which was broadcast on the occasion of Iran National Day of Nuclear Technology (April 8).
“Western countries even boycotted exports of radiotherapy medicines to Iran and this has led to terrible suffering of some of our cancer patients who need those medicines for their treatment,” Boroujerdi said.
However, the MP said that Iranian scientists have succeeded two years ago to produce radiotherapy medicines and made the country self-sufficient in this field.
Boroujerdi said that imposing anti-Iran sanctions by Western countries had “positive effects” on the country.
Iranians inside and outside the country celebrated their National Day of Nuclear Technology on Tuesday.
The day marks the victory of the Iranian scientists in producing uranium enriched 3.5 percent in Natanz facility (in central Iran) two years ago.
In 2007, President Ahmadinejad announced the 20th day of the first month of the Iranian calendar year (Farvardin) which falls on April 8 this year, as the country’s National Nuclear Technology Day.
The achievements in the field of peaceful nuclear technology made the country self-sufficient in production of fuel and Iran along with Brazil was recorded as the 8th country possessing fuel cycle, thanks to the efforts made by the young talented experts.
