Chief of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Ali Akbar Salehi said the country has begun to build a hall near its Natanz nuclear site to replace a production hall at the facility which was damaged by an explosion in July.
The Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman rejected claims that recent fires in Iran were caused by cyber attacks, but said the country reserves the right to deliver a “proper” response to any such operation in the future.
The spokesman for the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) said a new and more advanced shed will be built at Natanz nuclear facility in central Iran to replace the one damaged in an incident that happened Thursday.
The spokesman for the Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) has said the main cause of the incident occurred on July 2 at Natanz nuclear site has been determined and will be announced “at an appropriate time due to security considerations.”
The spokesman for the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) said an incident hitting the country’s Natanz nuclear facility early Thursday has caused no stoppage or slowdown of enrichment work at the facility, because the affected shed was actually under construction and not part of the enrichment process yet.
The spokesman for Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) has said the incident in Natanz nuclear facility caused no radiation leak as was claimed by certain opposition media and it did not affect the site’s normal enrichment activities.
An incident occurred at one of the under-construction sheds in Natanz nuclear facility in central Iran on Thursday morning causing no casualties or damage to the main site, said spokesman of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Behrouz Kamalvandi.
Iran has installed 15 types of advanced centrifuges to enrich uranium at its Natanz Enrichment Facilities. This came as Iran marked the 40th anniversary of the US embassy takeover, when Iranian students stormed the US embassy in Tehran back in 1980.
For more than a decade, the name of Natanz in Isfahan province has been associated with its nuclear energy facility. A Google search provides 413,000 instances most of which pertain to nuclear issues. However, to an Iranian, it brings to mind rare and unique mementos such as a type of pear grown in Tameh Village.
