    Kamalvandi added that “We hope to have good cooperation in various fields, especially power plants and small and medium-sized power plants, given China’s capacity and capabilities and the need for the development of the country’s nuclear industry.”

    The senior Iranian nuclear official added that “We have already negotiated with China on small power plants so that we can reach agreements and work on nuclear cooperation.”

    According to the AEOI spokesman “The 25-year agreement will pave the way for the development of strategic industry cooperation between the two countries.”

    Elsewhere, he referred to the redesigned Arak nuclear reactor and said that “The Arak project has seen good progress. Its equipment is designed and manufactured by Iranian experts.” He explained that the parties to the JCPOA were supposed to help Iran redesigning the Arak reactor, but, according to Kamalvandi, their help was limited to “an initial review.”
