Ali Akbar Salehi, Minister of Foreign Affairs introduced Majid Shahriari as the most prominent nuclear scientist of Iran and said that Shahriari was the only Iranian scientist who helped the Islamic Republic to reach the production of 20% fuel plates through his nuclear calculations.
Mr. Salehi said this point in his interview with the section "Morning Courier" on Iranian Radio on Monday (November 28).
This is the first time since Mahid Shahriari's assassination on last year that a high-ranked official of the Islamic Republic call him the most prominent nuclear scientist of the Iran.
Iranian Minister of the Foreign Affairs said that Shahriari was the only Iranian nuclear scientist whose score was 100; the other Iranian nuclear scientists are 50 at their best conditions.
Moreover, Salehi said that "the most modern factory of the world in producing the nuclear fuel plates" will be inaugurated on the name of Majid Shahriari in coming future.
Fereydoon Abbasi, the head of Iranian Nuclear Organization confirmed Salehi's statements and said Shahriari "was the most knowledgeable nuclear man of Iran".
Majid Shahriari, the professor of Shahid Beheshti University of Tehran, the physicist and nuclear scientist was assassinated in Tehran on 29th November 2010.
The officials and the media of the Islamic Republic accused America and Israel to plan and perform the assassination of this and other nuclear scientists of Iran.
Fereydoon Abbasi, the head of Iranian Nuclear Organization who had been targeted at the same day, declared last week in Qom that the security organizations had warned him on his possible assassination.
Mr. Abbasi has added that his targeting was done at a time when the security and intelligence organizations of the Islamic Republic had forgot that his name is in the assassination lists.
