Nuclear-Powered Submarine to be Build for Iran

By Curious

An Iranian marine commander stated on Tuesday that Iran had started work on its 1st submarine that is nuclear-powered.
“We have taken the 1st step in the direction of constructing the nuclear-powered submarines,” stated Cmdr. Abbas Zamini of the Deputy Navy.
Some analysts fear Iran might use this project for nuclear-powered submarine to justify enriching uranium to superior higher levels. A nuclear proliferation expert, who is working at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace - Mark Hibbs, was cited as saying that lots of nuclear-powered submarines use uranium fuel enriched to levels that might also be used for atomic bombs.
Iran is planned to meet next week with international negotiators over its nuclear program.
