Iran Eyes Regional Nuclear Cooperation

Iran Eyes Regional Nuclear Cooperation

Iran plans to promote cooperation with regional countries, particularly Persian Gulf Arab neighbors, on the employment of nuclear technology for peaceful purposes, spokesman of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran said.
In an interview with Al-Alam News Network on Sunday, Behrouz Kamalvandi said the neighboring countries need to set aside the western-inspired notion of a threat posed by Iran and called for expansion of wide-ranging cooperation in the field of peaceful nuclear energy.
"There exist abundant opportunities for collaboration with neighbors, especially in the Persian Gulf region," he said. Kamalvandi pointed to plans for closer regional cooperation in the nuclear industry, saying they will be unveiled in future.
"More reciprocal visits between Iran and regional countries will set the ground for cooperation in various nuclear fields, such as medicine and agriculture," he said. The spokesman stressed that Iran's centrifuge machines can help develop the region's oil and gas industries at a reasonable price.
The global enthusiasm for nuclear cooperation with Iran has grown after the implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, a comprehensive nuclear agreement between Tehran and P5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain and France, plus Germany).
The deal has enabled Iran to participate in nuclear trade, leaving it with the option to work with countries that have access to nuclear technology.
France, Spain, South Korea and other countries have expressed willingness to work with Iran in the nuclear industry.
