Iran’s AEOI Offers Nuclear Expertise to Other Nations

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization (AEOI) Spokesperson Behrouz Kamalvandi voiced the country’s readiness to share its nuclear advancements with other nations, particularly neighboring states.

Speaking at the third Iranian-Arab Dialogue Conference in Tehran on Wednesday, Kamalvandi emphasized Iran's extensive experience and expertise in nuclear technology over the past 50 years, stating, "Iran stands ready for comprehensive cooperation to transfer its nuclear expertise and technology to all countries, particularly to neighboring countries."

Despite facing Western sanctions, Kamalvandi underscored Iran's achievements in uranium enrichment and the production of radiopharmaceuticals.

He condemned Israel's interference in Iran's nuclear endeavors, citing the assassination of Iranian scientists and acts of industrial and cyber sabotage by the Zionist regime aimed at hindering Islamic Republic’s nuclear progress, saying, “We did not obtain the nuclear industry easily in our country and we paid a heavy price for it."

Kamalvandi expressed regret that political considerations have overshadowed technical negotiations between Tehran and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), advocating for talks to adhere strictly to the Safeguards Agreement framework.

Iran currently operates one nuclear power plant and is constructing two more, with plans to generate 20,000 megawatts of nuclear electricity within the next two decades.

Last month, AEOI head Mohammad Eslami reaffirmed Iran's commitment to expanding its nuclear infrastructure to enhance national energy security, citing the successful operation of the Bushehr nuclear power plant.

Eslami made the announcement during a visit of the first unit of Iran's only nuclear plant in south of the country on April 22, saying that the Bushehr nuclear power plant has managed to produce a considerable amount of electricity in the past years.

Despite facing sanctions and obstacles from Western powers, Iran has made significant strides in its peaceful nuclear energy program, maintaining cooperation with the IAEA as a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).

Iran demonstrated its commitment to peaceful nuclear activities by signing the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) in 2015. However, the unilateral withdrawal of the United States in 2018 and subsequent re-imposition of sanctions cast uncertainty over the agreement's future.
