Tehran, YJC. Salehi says Iran can meet Western demands while preserving its nuclear facilities.

Head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization in a live show on TV on Wednesday evening pointed to controversy over the country’s heavy water facilities of Arak and said "We must leave Westerners with no alibi. We have to be smart. It was not mentioned in the joint plan of action that heavy water should turn into light water; but again many tried to raise dust over it.”

"We can remove alibis so that the Arak heavy water remains heavy, we would only have to redesign it,” Aliakbar Salehi asserted.

He then pointed to the country’s achievements in building centrifuges and said "Once 50 thousand centrifuges of the first generation were needed to make the uranium needed for the Bushehr reactor. Now, though, with the new generation of centrifuges, 50 thousand machines can cover 6 or seven other power plants as well.”

Reporting further on the industrialization of the nuclear technology in Iran he said that the IAEO has made contract with the Health Ministry where it will be providing the health section with serums made using centrifuges.

"There is a big research center in Karaj where the nuclear technology is being examined on plants,” he stated.
