IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, May 25, IRNA -- Iran’s permanent envoy to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Ali-Asghar Soltanieh said on Wednesday that Iran has informed the IAEA of its readiness to export radioisotope products oversease.

Speaking to IRNA on the sidelines of the International Energy Seminar, Soltanieh said, “In the last year’s conference of the IAEA, we announced that considering its capabiolities in the field of radioisotope technology, Iran is ready to export nuclear products after commissioning of Arak reactor.

'Regarding high potential of the country in production of radioisotope products after commissioning of the 40-megawatt Arak reactor, Iran can put the product at the disposal of other countries through the IAEA. The radioisotope produced in the country is now only for domestic consumption but after putting into operation the Arak reactor, the country can meet the needs of neighboring countries for such material,” Soltanieh said.
