EghtesadOnline: Iran's Ambassador to Britain Hamid Baeidinejad said that Iran is currently involved in the highest level of cooperation in nuclear energy development.
He made the remarks after the Head of Iran Atomic Energy Organization Ali Akbar Salehi's presence in the World Nuclear Association Symposium on Friday, according to IRNA.
Baeidinejad wrote in his Telegram page in a material titled 'Iran Among World Biggest Nuclear Powers' that today a major development occurred in Iran's nuclear industry in post-JCPOA era.
Iran which could not attend the international gathering of the major companies involved in developing nuclear energy is now participating in World Nuclear Association Symposium 2016 at the highest level, he said.
The association has brought together all elites from various fields of nuclear energy from 35 countries, which make up 80 percent of the world's total population, the ambassador said.
Giant nuclear companies such as Rosatom from Russia and energy agencies of China, the US, Japan, Britain, France, Kazakhstan have convened to discuss various aspects of nuclear energy application ranging form extracting uranium ore to uranium enrichment.
Iran's presence in the event indicates that its scientists who have conquered the most complicated picks of nuclear technology are hailed by the countries, he said, noting that the association had invited Salehi to take part in the symposium.
World Nuclear Association with over 400 members is an international organization comprising senior directors of nuclear companies and plays a crucial role in the production and improvement of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes.
Due to the sanctions imposed by the UNSC against Iran for its nuclear program in recent years, Iran's cooperation with the association has been suspended but Iran has participated in the ongoing meeting at the highest level after the implementation of Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
Salehi held talks with Director General of the World Nuclear Association Agneta Rising and chancellor of the association's university Patricia Weiland on the sidelines of the annual meeting.
Chiefs and experts of nuclear industry from 35 countries are participating in the three-day specialized international symposium of the World Nuclear Association located in Britain.
Salehi arrived in London from Brussels on Thursday to attend the annual meeting of the World Nuclear Association.
