EU ‘now fully engaged in nuclear research coop.’

TEHRAN, Apr. 17 (MNA) – Head of AEOI has said Fordow nuclear facility would provide excellent grounds for Iran-EU cooperation on nuclear research.

Ali Akbar Salehi and the EU Commissioner for Climate Action and Energy Miguel Arias Cañete met on Sunday to discuss Iran and the EU’s possible nuclear cooperation. Salehi said that after JCPOA implementation, Iran had hosted many EU delegations, and “now we see a full European engagement in the issue.”

“The 3rd chapter of JCPOA provides articles by which the EU countries should cooperate with Iran in nuclear research and development; today’s meeting with the EU commissioners will be communicated to the public in a joint statement,” Salehi told the press. “We hope to see the ever-increasing pace of bilateral cooperation in different nuclear fields, for which Fordow facilities could be an excellent ground for cooperation with the EU in laboratory settings, especially cooperation in the framework of ITER.”

“ITER was a topic of Sunday’s discussion and we agreed to build an advanced nuclear center in Iran which could provide technical advice and services to Iran as well as countries in the region,” Salehi added. 

 ITER, ‘The Way,’ in Latin, is one of the most ambitious energy projects in the world today. In southern France, 35 nations are collaborating to build the world's largest tokamak, a magnetic fusion device that has been designed to prove the feasibility of fusion as a large-scale and carbon-free source of energy based on the same principle that powers our Sun and stars.
