Ynet: Iran unveils nuclear reactor upgrade plan

Islamic Republic announces plan to activate 40-megawatt Arak heavy water nuclear center; ‘research reactor due for completion in 2009 and will make isotopes for medical, industrial, and other peaceful uses,’ Tehran Times claims.

Iran is set to upgrade its nuclear reactor capability by replacing its 5-megawatt reactor in Tehran with Arak’s 40-megawatt heavy water research reactor, the Tehran Times reported.

The Iranian newspaper quoted the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran’s Director Reza Aqazadeh as saying that “Tehran’s reactor will be turned off by the time that Arak’s reactor is started up.”

Heavy water nuclear centers can be used to convert uranium into plutonium, for use in the production of nuclear weapons.

Another bombing target for the United States and Israeli Defense Forces. Why is the United States bothering in the United Nations?

Biding time?

Probably
