Mehr News Agency reports that a number of lawmakers are composing a draft that will oblige the government to increase its number of nuclear centrifuges.
The draft comes shortly after another one which addressed increasing the uranium enrichment level to 60 percent.
The draft ordering the government to 60 percent enrichment has so far been signed by 100 lawmakers and is soon to be handed to the Majlis Board of Directors.
These two drafts address the country’s need in industry, medicine, and agriculture with an eye to future developments.
Principalist parliamentary group member Abolqasem Jarareh providing comments on the Majlis’ entry into affairs relating to the country’s needs in the nuclear section said "Currently our need in the nuclear section is limited to power plants. But that’s just a small part of the job and the developed countries’ need for enrichment in diverse sections is a lot more than that.”
"For example”, he added "by turning a lot of the existing projects nuclear we will be able to prevent air pollution in large cities. In agriculture, also, it is possible through nuclear technology to prevent the diseases that are caused by inorganic fertilizers.”
