Vice-President and head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, said "Nuclear safety of our nuclear industry is a priority for us."

Iran Press/Europe:Speaking during a seminar on peaceful nuclear cooperation between Iran and the European Union in Brussels on Monday, Ali Akbar Salehi, added, Nuclear safety of our nuclear industry is a priority for us and the latest achievements are therefore of great importance, because they will help to further enhance the safety of the entire fuel cycle.

Salehi condemned Washington’s efforts to prevent the implementation of Iran nuclear deal by exerting pressure on other countries to follow its sanctions plan on Tehran,Iran press reported.

Many independent countries view Washington’s decision to withdraw from Iran nuclear deal as a strange move as the UN atomic agency has confirmed Iran’s commitment to its promises under the deal in 13 separate reports, Salehi said. 

Hailing the underway cooperation between Iran and the European Union on stress test in Iran’s Bushehr nuclear power plant, the official expressed satisfaction with feasibility studies being carried out by the European Commission in Iran’s Nuclear Safety Center. 

Noting that nuclear safety is Iran’s priority, he said that the recent achievements are of special significance as they help the further safety of nuclear cycle. 

It is for the first time that the seminar is being held after the US backed out from a multilateral nuclear deal signed in 2015 between Iran and the six world powers. 

Heading a high-ranking delegation, chief of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Ali Akbar Salehi left Tehran for Brussels on Sunday to attend a high-level seminar on peaceful international nuclear cooperation with the European Union. 105
