China to build nuclear power plants for Iran

Iran and China will partner in the construction of nuclear power plants, Spokesman of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Behrouz Kamalvandi announced on Tuesday.


"The Islamic Republic of Iran plans to produce at least 190,000 SWUs (Separative Work Units) of nuclear fuel at the industrial scale, while we also think about 1,000,000 SWUs, which will be needed to fuel 5 power plants like Bushehr nuclear power plant," Kamalvandi said, addressing a meeting dubbed as 'an Analysis of Lausanne Statement' in Tehran on Tuesday.

"This is the reason why we have inked an agreement with the Russians to construct two nuclear power plants for the generation of electricity while the Chinese will also enter this arena soon," he added.

Elsewhere, Kamalvandi referred to the contents of the Lausanne nuclear statement issued by Iran and the world powers on April 2, and said based on the statement, Iran has accepted little limitations on its Research and Development (R&D) program, which will come to an end after a 10-year period.

Noting that based on the statement, the Fordo uranium enrichment facility in Central Iran will be kept intact, he said that over 1,000 centrifuges will remain at Fordo.

On Saturday, Kamalvandi announced the country's plans to build small nuclear power plants on the rims of the Persian Gulf to desalinate water.
