Today, our only option in the nuclear dispute is resistance: Salehi

Iran’s atomic chief said the country had no alternative than resisting world powers in the dispute over its nuclear programmes, the ISNA news agency reported Wednesday.

“Today, our only option in the nuclear dispute is resistance, and if we do resist, then the opposition against our nuclear programmes will collapse,” Ali-Akbar Salehi predicted.

“There are 1,000 Iranian experts in Bushehr who will take charge of the plant from the Russians as soon as the guarantee phase is over,” Salehi said. What he means that we make Russians leave and after sometime, do whatever we want in Bushehr.

He also said “more happy news” about Iran’s nuclear achievements would be announced in the coming days.

Iran plans to build 10 to 20 nuclear power plants and enrichment sites in the coming years with the final aim to produce enough nuclear fuel to cover its electricity needs.

Iran currently operates one uranium conversion and one enrichment site. A second enrichment plant is under construction.

According to Salehi, construction of a third enrichment site is to start by March.

John Bolton warned Monday, it will be too late for Israel to launch a military strike against the facility because any attack would spread radiation and affect Iranian civilians.

“Once that uranium, once those fuel rods are very close to the reactor, certainly once they’re in the reactor, attacking it means a release of radiation, no question about it,” Bolton told Fox Business Network.

“So if Israel is going to do anything against Bushehr it has to move in the next eight days.”

Absent an Israeli strike, Bolton said, “Iran will achieve something that no other opponent of Israel, no other enemy of the United States in the Middle East really has and that is a functioning nuclear reactor.”
