'In recent years, the industrial nuclear activities have played a pivotal role in implementing the infrastructural industries countrywide and fostered the national pride,' he said.

'We are seeking to employ the JCPOA opportunities and standardize and improve the quality of nuclear products with the help of other countries technologies,' the official added.

Pointing to the issue of cyber threats, he said the AEOI has recently succeeded to implement several security plans aimed at preventing any possible cyber attacks.

He added in conclusion that several new nuclear projects would be implemented by the end of the current Iranian calendar year (started March 20, 2016).
