Iran reaches record levels in uranium enrichment - AEOI chief
The head of Iran's nuclear organization praised the Parliament for implementing the Strategic Action Plan which consisted in lifting sanctions and protecting Iranian national interests and was approved in late 2020.
At a meeting with Iranian lawmakers on Saturday, the head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Mohammad Eslami praised new milestones Iran has achieved as its uranium enrichment capacity is currently twice as high as the total capacity it had in the entire history of its nuclear industry.
Eslami praised the Iranian Parliament for implementing the Strategic Action Plan which consisted in lifting sanctions and protecting Iranian national interests and was approved in late 2020.
According to the nuclear chief, the law has greatly contributed to the development of Iran's nuclear industry and increased the level of uranium enrichment to levels twice as high as those of the whole history of the nuclear industry in the country.

Eslami added that a report has been issued for the development of Iran's national industries and the enhancement of productive capacities.
Nuclear-generated power has immensely benefited Iran's economy as it further contributed to reducing the dependence on the consumption of fossil fuels and preventing environmental damage.
He further added that developments in nuclear sciences could contribute to important advances in sectors such as medicine and agriculture.
Earlier in October this year, Eslami said that Iran was planning to increase its nuclear power generation capacity to 10,000 megawatts without reliance on international partnership.
