TEHRAN (FNA)- Head of Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Ali Akbar Salehi announced that the new phase of a nuclear project will become operational in Fordo site in the coming days.

"The stage of a nuclear project at Fordo facilities will be exploited within a few days," Salehi said.

"We have held good talks with the EU delegation on nuclear cooperation which can start from the Fordo site," he added.

Salehi also said that Tehran and the EU have decided to set up an advanced nuclear center in Iran to provide the country and neighbors with related services.

His remarks came after Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif announced that cooperation between Tehran and the European Union in the field of peaceful nuclear technology is among the important issues pursued during EU Foreign Policy Chief Federica Mogherini's visit to Tehran.
