“Based on our estimates, the second nuclear power plant will be built in the same province (Bushehr) and I hope that we can use the facilities of this province,” Iranian President Hassan Rouhani told Fars over the weekend.

Iran has identified 34 locations where new nuclear facilities could be built, Fars reported. The Islamic Republic will also not enter future nuclear talks that include Israel, said its foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif.

“Such a thing will never happen and we definitely will not be in the room in which representatives from the Zionist regime will have presence,” Zarif told IRNA.
