Iranian scientists stress peaceful nature of nuclear program
Tehran, Oct 16 (Prensa Latina) The Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) stressed the peaceful nature of its nuclear program on Friday, in response to the coercion and unilateralism of the United States, the website of ParsToday reported.
The statement by Iranian scientists refers to accusations by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on the Islamic Republic's alleged intention to develop atomic weapons.
A statement from the AEOI, quoted by the website, noted that the peaceful use of nuclear energy is a principle of the Islamic system of Iran.
Pompeo's repeated comments do not consider that Washington tried to destroy the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) or nuclear deal, which was signed in 2015 by Iran and the 5+1 Group (United States, United Kingdom, France, Russia and China plus Germany) and established Iran's commitment to limiting the potential of its atomic industry in exchange for the easing of sanctions decreed by the United Nations in 2007.
