    Tehran: Iran said on Saturday it planned to build an experimental nuclear fusion reactor, state television reported, at a time when the west is demanding that Tehran suspend sensitive nuclear work.
    In 2006, Iran said it was pressing ahead with research tests on nuclear fusion, a type of atomic reaction which has yet to be developed for commercial power generation, but this was the first mention in years that the work was continuing.
    “We need two years to complete the studies on constructing and then another 10 years to design and build the reactor,” Asqar Sediqzadeh, head of Iran’s Nuclear Fusion Research Center, said.
    The US suspects Iran is trying to build an atomic bomb, and have imposed curbs on it in a drive to convince it to drop sensitive nuclear work.
