Iran says it has set a 2020 target date to build its first experimental nuclear fusion reactor, a feat yet to be achieved by any other nation.
The country said in July that its nuclear agency had begun research on the experiment. Iran's semi-official ISNA news agency quoted the head of the new nuclear fusion research center, saying the center will hire 100 experts to join the project.
Western powers suspect Iran plans to produce nuclear weapons through its nuclear development. But Iran denies this, saying its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes.
