NCRI - On Friday, the chairman of National Security and Foreign Policy Committee of the Iranian regime's parliament said the regime nuclear program has not changed.
Alaeddin Boroujerdi said the recent allegations about Arak heavy water nuclear power plant of and the Fordow underground uranium enrichment site "have been a Zionist ploy to distract public opinion from Israel’s war crimes in the Gaza Strip."
He said that the activities at Arak and Fordow facilities will continue normally in the future, state-run media reported.
Also a senior Iranian regime nuclear negotiator said in Tehran on Thursday that the Iranian regime and the six world powers have not reached any agreement on the two sites.
"In principle, no agreement has been made on any topics pertaining to the nuclear issues of Iran yet. And the difference over Arak heavy water reactor and Fordow uranium enrichment are still in place," said Abbas Araqchi.
His remarks came in reaction to some media report on recent remarks of Wendy Sherman, undersecretary of state for political affairs, who said that in the past six months, Iran and powers have made significant and steady progress on key issues.
