Trump should stop bothering himself, others: Iran nuclear official

Mashad, The US administration and President Donald Trump should come to their senses and stop bothering themselves and others, said the head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) in Mashad on Monday

'Foreigners should take these remarks more seriously than some do in the country; when we say we are ready to go back to the previous situation or even a better one, we speak based on facts.'

Saying that the atomic propellant project is going on well, he said, 'Only six countries have the technology now: the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council and India, which made it with the help of Russia.'

Regarding the ion therapy hospital, he said that its designing is almost complete, added that the hospital is the first of its kind in West Asia.

Salehi said work on establishing the hospital will start soon and it will take about Euros 200m to equip it.
