Iran: N. propulsion systems to be developed

(MENAFN) "Given the Islamic Republic's marine capacities across the world and that Iran is one of the countries with the highest traffic in the international waters, it is necessary that we use the capability of nuclear propulsion systems," Chairman of the Iranian parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi said.

He highlighted that the president has issued the order for implementing the project to build nuclear propulsion systems, adding that no international body has objected at the decision and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is also aware of the plan.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani ordered the country's nuclear agency to start plans to produce nuclear fuel and propulsion systems for ships and submarines in response to the violation of the Vienna deal by Washington, In December 2016.

"Considering that the US administration has ignored and delayed compliance with its undertakings under the JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action), and given the recent extension of the Iran Sanctions Act (ISA) that had already been declared as a violation of the nuclear deal by the Islamic Republic of Iran..., the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran is ordered to develop the country's peaceful nuclear program within the framework of the Islamic Republic of Iran's international undertakings as defined in the following missions," President Rouhani said in a letter to AEOI Chief Ali Akbar Salehi.
