The head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) said the Islamic Republic has entered a new phase in nuclear activity, Iran’s semi-independent Tasnim News Agency reported on Wednesday.

Ali Akbar Salehi highlighted the progress Tehran has made since the signing of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

In this “new phase,” according to Salehi, Iran “will be able to witness an expansion in our [nuclear] activities and its acceleration, particularly in the field of constructing nuclear plants.”

Salehi also expressed his hope that the AEOI would be able to use future nuclear facilities to expand operations in “desalination of water for those living in southern Iranian provinces,” as well as, “health, industry, agriculture and construction of new [nuclear] plants.”
