"I feel glad to announce that we have taken important steps about cooperation between AEOI and Health Area, which are with the aim of meeting domestic needs as well as within the framework of Resistance Economy on which the Supreme Leader put emphasis," Salehi said.

Pointing out that AEOI managed to provide the health area with centrifuges, as scarce dual-purpose facilities and technologies, Salehi went on to say, “Meeting the vaccine and new drug needs required advanced centrifuges and therefore the health area were provided with three of these kinds, which is considered as an honor to AEOI making a contribution to this area using its accumulated experiences and knowledge”.
Pointing to the memorandum of understanding between RIPI and AEOI inked on 5 April 2016, Salehi added that, “Both parties’ experts have already checked over each other’s equipment and therefore they are going to find ways in order for AEOI to offer its services to oil industry”.
Pointing out that centrifuge plays a key role in industry, Salehi said that, “Input material used in centrifuges in AEOI is gas, but it is liquid and solid as for the health area, which is looked on as a great experience for the country’s nuclear industry”.
