International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Director General Rafael Grossi

Iran's IRGC Involved In Bushehr Nuclear Plant Expansion

Wednesday, 02/14/2024

Iran's IRGC is constructing a new expansion of the Bushehr power plant, revealed just one day after the United Nations' nuclear chief, Rafael Grossi, said Iran was "not entirely transparent" on its nuclear program.

The governor of Bushehr, Ahmad Mohammadi-Zadeh, referring to the regime's armed forces, said "domestic experts are overseeing the construction of the two nuclear power plants, each with a capacity of 1080 megawatts of electricity production.”

Grossi’s comments came in response to statements made by Iran’s former nuclear energy organization chief Ali Akbar Salehi, who was also the country's foreign minister from 2010-2013.

In a televised interview when asked if Iran has achieved the capability of developing a nuclear bomb, avoiding a direct answer Salehi stated, "We have [crossed] all the thresholds of nuclear science and technology." He said Iran is “presenting a face which is not entirely transparent when it comes to its nuclear activities”.

Iran's nuclear program has long been a source of contention in the international community, with concerns about its potential military dimensions as it continues to enrich beyond international limits.

The IRGC's involvement in Iran's nuclear activities has been a subject of scrutiny and suspicion.

While the exact nature and extent of its involvement is not always clear due to the secretive nature of Iran's nuclear program, there have been allegations of the IRGC's involvement in nuclear research, procurement of technology, and possibly even aspects of weaponization.

Several nations including the UK, Australia and the US, have strong political lobbies calling for the designation of the IRGC as a terror group following its brutal suppression of protesters following the Women, Life, Freedom uprising of 2022, and its murder plots on foreign soil uncovered as far afield as Europe to South America.
