Iran to generate 2,000 megawatts of nuclear electricity

The Iranian Director of Atomic Energy Organization (AEOI)says the country will produce 2,000 megawatts of nuclear power by the end of the current Iranian calendar year.

“So far, 1,000 megawatts (MW) of nuclear power has been generated in the country,” Fereydoun Abbasi said in a meeting with the employees of a research center in the city of Bonab, East Azarbaijan province in northwestern Iran.

He added: “Presently, the necessary infrastructure and equipment are being prepared inside the country.”

The AEOI director also stressed the significance of export, and efforts to enter global markets.

Since last year, the United States and the European Union enforced new sanctions on Iran’s oil and financial sectors with the goal of preventing other countries from purchasing Iran’s oil and conducting transactions with the Central Bank of Iran.

The illegal US sanctions were imposed based on the groundless accusation that Iran is pursuing non-civilian intents in its nuclear energy program.

Iran rejects the claims, arguing that as a committed signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and a member of IAEA, it has the full right to use nuclear knowledge for peaceful purposes.

Furthermore, the IAEA has conducted frequent inspections of Iran’s nuclear facilities but has never found any proof showing that Iran’s nuclear program has been diverted to nuclear weapons.
