Parliament would decide enrichment level

TEHRAN, Dec. 14 (MNA) – A Parliament Principalist member has said Parliament would decide on the enrichment level agreed on Geneva joint Action Plan.

Abolqasem Jarrareh told Mehr News Parliament correspondent that Principalist faction of the Parliament had worked out a plan to decide on the country’s needs in terms of uranium enrichment.

“Representatives with specialties in nuclear science, economics and legal matters have been working on the plan,” he told Mehr News.

“An article of the joint Action Plan states that Iran should enrich uranium according to its needs, and Parliamentarians would mandate the government on the needs for uranium enrichment,” Jarrareh added.

“Currently, our needs are limited to fuels of power plants, which are only a small part of the project. Developed countries need much higher levels of enrichment,” he said.

Jarrareh cited nuclear applications in the civil projects as useful to prevent air pollution and in agriculture to avoid chemical maneuvers use in controlling pests. Commenting on nuclear fuel of Iran’s ocean-going ship, he said that to provide the fuel for ship, Iran would need to enrich uranium up to 65 percent purity.
