Bushehr Nuclear Plant No Environmental Hazard

A member of the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee dismissed concerns voiced by some Arab neighbors about the safety of Iran's nuclear program and the risk of radioactive contamination from the Bushehr nuclear power plant in southern Iran on the shores of the Persian Gulf.
MP Ibrahim Aqa-Mohammadi said on Friday that the Bushehr plant poses no hazard (whatsoever) to humans and the environment" and concerns expressed about the safety of the plant are due to "a lack of understanding of (relevant) technical issues," ICANA reported."  
"Kuwait has inadvertently or under pressure made (such) baseless claims," he said, adding, "Certain states are seeking to manipulate environmental issues to cause anxiety and confusion among the public in a bid to show their opposition to Iran's nuclear program and as part of a psychological warfare."
Kuwaiti Foreign Minister Sheikh Sabah Al Khaled Al Sabah said this week that Iran should explain the nature of its nuclear program to the International Atomic Energy Agency, particularly to eliminate the risk of any nuclear radiation leak to Kuwaiti and Persian Gulf waters, according to Elbalad website.
Aqa-Mohammadi, elsewhere, responded to the claim by saying, "Iran's nuclear program has no harmful waste," saying, "The International Atomic Energy Agency is monitoring all Iranian nuclear facilities."
