"The trend of (the development of) the nuclear energy in our country has been ascending and promising…, and will eventually gladden the people, Muslims and the freedom-seekers of the world," member of the parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Esmae'il Kosari told FNA.
Reiterating the civilian nature of Iran's nuclear activities, the lawmaker reminded that Iran has made all its moves and progresses in the field of nuclear technology in full compliance with the rules and regulations of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
Iran unveiled the country's new advances in the field of peaceful nuclear technology at a ceremony held in Tehran on Friday marking 'the National Day of Nuclear Technology'.
Addressing the participants at the ceremony, Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Ali Akbar Salehi announced that Iranian scientists have managed to design first sample of the third generation of home-made centrifuges and that uranium enrichment process to the purity of below 5% is underway in Iran using the first generation of centrifuges that have the separation capacity of 1.8.
Elsewhere, Kosari pointing to US President Barack Obama's recent nuclear threat against Iran and the subsequent response to his remarks by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and said Ahmadinejad's warning to Obama proved that in the modern world every word brings a reaction.
Obama, in an interview with The New York Times, threatened Iran and North Koran with nuclear weapons.
The US administration released its policy document known as "Nuclear Posture Review" last week, in which the administration called a manifesto "achieving substantial further nuclear force reductions".
Although it explicitly states that all non-nuclear weapons states are immune from nuclear attack, the statement reserves the use of nuclear weapons against countries like Iran and North Korea, labeled as "outliers" in the paper.
In response, President Ahmadinejad said that American leaders still act like cowboys and like heroes in Western movies, "Whenever there is a problem, they take out their guns."
Other Iranian officials have also warned Obama against such words and moves, cautioning that Iran's response to such insanities would be crushing.
