TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Ambassador to Kuwait City Alireza Enayati voiced Tehran’s readiness to share its domestically-grown nuclear know-how with the neighboring countries, including Kuwait.
“As Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Ali Akbar Salehi has announced these experiences, including our achievements in the field of nuclear medicine, are available to everyone,” the Arabic-language newspaper Al-Jareeda quoted Enayati as saying on Sunday.
He noted that Iran is planning to build the biggest nuclear medicine hospital of the Middle East which can also provide services to the neighboring countries as well.
On July 18, Salehi announced that Iran plans to construct a special hospital to treat patients who need nuclear medicine.
“Building a specialized nuclear(-diagnosis and treatment) hospital is among the AEOI’s important projects and a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has also been signed by the AEOI, the health ministry and Tehran Municipality in this regard,” Salehi told reporters.
He explained that the hospital will present specialized services to treat patients using radiation and different equipment that work with the help of nuclear technology.
Salehi had in earlier remarks stated that the hospital would be unique in West of Asia and make Iranians needless of travels to foreign states for nuclear medicine.
Iran and Kuwait have sought to expand bilateral ties through exchanging several high-ranking delegations in the last few years.
