IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Semnan, Dec 5, IRNA -- Iran has left behind the critical stage by terminating fabricated and unnecessary nuclear challenge, preparing the ground to utilize nuclear achievements, head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Ali-Akbar Salehi said on Saturday.

Salehi made the remarks in a message he sent to an exhibition of Iran's nuclear achievements underway at Semnan University.

'Today it has become evident to many people around the world that in order to improve their life standard and upgrade human capabilities in the areas of health and agriculture, they need to pay due attention to this area of new science,' Salehi said.

AEOI is determined to maintain Iran's status as the center for providing radioisotopes in the Middle East by making use of the capacity of its nuclear researchers, Salehi added.

He said that holding the exhibition of Iran's nuclear achievements at Semnan University is indicative of AEOI's resolve to cooperate with Iranian university students and researchers.

The 33rd exhibition of Iran's nuclear achievements opened at Semnan University in 23 pavilions and three sections (the fuel cycle, power plants and subsidiary uses) on Saturday with participation of respective officials.
