ImageTehran, Iran, Apr. 20 – Iran on Monday said it had the full know-how to produce nuclear fuel and wanted to export the fuel.

International pressure had prevented countries from offering Iran a nuclear license and therefore "it is only natural for them to show reluctance in purchasing nuclear fuel from Iran", deputy head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Abdollah Solat-Sana told the official state news agency IRNA on the sidelines of a nuclear technology exhibition in Tehran.

Solat-Sana said that Tehran could best gain international trust for its nuclear products by "firstly using domestically-produced nuclear fuel in Iranian nuclear plants".

However, he added that the nuclear reactor plant in Bushehr, which is being built by Russia, would be supplied with Russian fuel. "We do not wish to provide nuclear fuel for the Bushehr plant ourselves, as we believe in having international ties which will enable us to both purchase and sell nuclear fuel", he said.
