    Iran has determined future locations to build 16 new nuclear power plants.

    The Atomic Energy Organization of Iran says under a long-term objective, it will build its new power plants along the coastal regions of the Persian Gulf, the Sea of Oman, and the North-Western regions.



    The head of the atomic energy organization of Iran says it's no secret that the country has installed hundreds of advanced centrifuge machines for enriching uranium at its Natanz nuclear power plant.

    He said that this major upgrade in Iran's nuclear energy program is in no way a provocative step as claimed by the US government.





    Under the direct supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency, Tehran is enriching uranium at 3.5 and 20 percent for reactor fuel and also for medical and scientific purposes.

    In a report submitted to Press TV, the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran also says that the country has a stockpile of 4400 tons of uranium for immediate use, plus proven uranium reserves of up to 33,000 tons.
