The start of the nuke work at the Fordo site has increased international fear as the West suspects that Iran's uranium enrichment may be meant for moving closer to the ability to make nuclear weapons. But Iran insists that its nuclear program is only for the purpose of peaceful use.

Also, after the president's speech on Saturday, some observers said that it is more probable that Iran will unveil the finished product of the nuclear fuel rod the preliminary sample of which was fed into the core of Tehran Research Reactor for further study in early January.

On January 1, Iranian media reported that the scientists and researchers of Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) succeeded in producing and testing the first sample of nuclear fuel rod " successfully" which was said to be made of natural uranium.

After all the preliminary tests including the physical and dimensional tests were conducted successfully, the nuclear fuel rod was fed into the core of Tehran Research Reactor to further study the performance of the produced sample, said the reports.

It was said that the performability of the sample in the long run will be tested in the core of the research reactor by exposing it to radiations.

Iran said Tehran Research Reactor uses the nuclear fuel bar to produce medicines for cancer treatments.
