According to the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, the fuel rods were produced at Isfahan nuclear facility and transferred to the Tehran Research Reactor under the supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspectors.

Several radio-pharmaceuticals made by Iranian experts were also unveiled by Ahmadinejad.

Personally i think Iran should be applauded, with so much negative moves by the west involving sanctions and threats... they have still managed to achieve a great industrial advancement.
It should benefit their economy largely, being able to sell more oil while still providing needed electricity to homes throughout the region.
For those who disagree and believe that Iran has no right to nuclear power, i would like to see those people persuade their own country to abolish nuclear power themselves.
