TEHRAN, Dec. 19 (ISNA)-The former secretary of Iran's supreme national security council Ali Larijani announced, "we back the idea of establishing an international nuclear fuel bank."
While adding that nuclear fuel is a strategic product he noted that there should be more capacity for producing the fuel.
Calling uranium enrichment "the center of nuclear energy" he denied abusing nuclear technology by Iran and called for the international community to take logical approaches towards the case.
"Delivering the fuel means ruling out the U.S. claims that called Iran's nuclear activities dangerous; furthermore, it proves that Iran is qualified to pursue its nuclear program which is Iran's right," Javad Vaeedi said.
Trusting Iran's nuclear activities could communicate that the process of dealing with its peaceful activities is being normalized, he said while adding that the reason behind this trust is the stable strategy that has facilitated the rights of an independent nation.
"Now this is the U.S. which has to start trust-building in the international community because of its lies and get out of the isolation it has created in Iraq, Afghanistan and Iran's nuclear issue," he stated.
Vaeedi also asserted that within the current atmosphere the path is not paved for the U.S. and its allies to issue another resolution on Tehran.
Besides launching bids among foreign companies to establish more nuclear power plants, Iran intends to cede the responsibility of building a number of stations including a small reactor in Iran's central city Arak to its own experts, Mohammad Saeedi pointed.
In case of constructing a 360-Megawatt power plant whose structure has already been designed, Iran as it has become self-sufficient in producing nuclear fuel, can build average power plants on its own within next 8 or 9 years, he explained.
He also announced that Iran should pursue both producing fuel and constructing power plant in its nuclear technology policy.
In such a case it is possible for Iranian experts to generate themselves some of their needed fuel for domestic power plants and import some amounts from other countries.
