An Iranian official said that Tehran was preparing to commercialize its nuclear technology, state-run IRNA reported on Tuesday.

Minister of Defense Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan said that Iran was preparing for the “commercialization phase of the peaceful nuclear industry after the implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).”

Dehqan said the JCPOA signaled the world’s recognition of Iran’s right to enrich uranium and to enter the commercial nuclear energy market, in spite of American and Israeli efforts to prevent it from doing so.

“The Israelis and Americans have done their best and mobilized all the trade satellites of the West to monitor Iran’s activities in different parts of the world and they held meetings on exchanging information and news,” he said.

    it’s another success for obama.

    one hears that obama is concerned about his legacy. well, he needn’t worry; he’ll have one and it will be formidable: obama will be recognized as one of the fathers of the iranian nuclear program. now, that the iranians have made clear their determination to disperse nuclear technology, obama’s assistance to the iranian regime will be seen to constitute a huge contribution to nuclear proliferation.

    the world has paid – in libya, syria, ukraine, iran, iraq, afghanistan, etc. – and will pay a high price for obama’s arrogance.

      obama’s “vision” for american foreign policy is to avoid deploying american troops, and to rely instead on proxy armies, by partnering with the islamists such as turkey, egypt (under morsi) and iran. these countries are key because they have the biggest armies and expansionist ideologies. mind you, this hasn’t worked out so well in libya (benghazi), or egypt (el-sisi), or syria, or iraq, or…

      his talk of bringing “democracy” is very much along the lines of the moslem brotherhood’s “one man, one vote, one time”, because strangely enough, he hasn’t supported “democracy” in egypt, turkey, or iran, once the islamists were in power. imagine that!

    Iran still has not signed the JCPOA letter, it is not a treaty or agreement or a binding document. So far it has been used by Iran to enforce it “right” to enrich uranium and to roll back the 40 years of sanctions. Obama has been running interference to protect iran
