Iran to conduct studies for nuclear fusion reactor

Tehran: Iran`s nuclear agency says it will
conduct scientific studies for the construction of an
experimental nuclear fusion reactor, an engineering challenge
that no nation has yet overcome.
Iran is not known to have carried out anything but basic
fusion research, and any advancement in a technology that is
cleaner than existing nuclear power plants would be a
significant achievement for an atomic programme watched with
concern by the US and other world powers.
The official IRNA news agency says the Atomic Energy
Organisation of Iran will hold a ceremony Saturday to begin
the research.

The US and some of its allies accuse Iran of using its
civilian nuclear programme as a cover to develop a nuclear
weapons capability. Iran denies the accusation.
