An Iranian physicist’s $19,000 salary could change how the world views nuclear engineering technology.
The salary earned by Hassan Reza Rahimi, who is a biomedical engineer at the Tehran University of Technology, could help change how U.S. scientists view Iran, a former U.N. nuclear official said Wednesday.
He said Rahimi could help the world understand how the United States was able to develop the country’s nuclear capabilities.
Iran’s nuclear program is the most advanced in the world, and the Iranian government has repeatedly promised that it will never build a bomb.
But the Islamic Republic has consistently shown no sign of actually delivering on its promises.
“He’s been able to get that salary without having to prove that he’s qualified,” said Mark Fitzpatrick, a retired professor at the University of Miami who studies Iran’s nuclear and ballistic missile programs.
The pay cut was part of a package of incentives Rahimi received after he was selected by the United Nations to help the International Atomic Energy Agency with its monitoring of Iran’s atomic activities.
The Iranian nuclear agency said Rahmi was awarded the job to help it monitor Iran’s progress in developing nuclear weapons.
Iranian officials have repeatedly called for an end to sanctions, which the United Nation’s nuclear watchdog says have hampered the country in its quest for nuclear weapons and nuclear technology.
But critics say they are unlikely to go far enough, and there is no evidence that Iran is ready to complete its nuclear work.
“If you don’t have an atomic bomb, there’s no point in building a bomb,” Fitzpatrick said.
“But if you do, it’s a huge amount of money.
If you don and they don’t, it means they’re really going to get the bomb.”
Rahimi received the nuclear engineering and nuclear engineering-related salary of $19.8 million last year, according to data provided by the government of Iran.
His pay will be reduced by an additional $4 million if he completes his research in nuclear physics, according the data.
The Iranian government pays its scientists based on their performance in a laboratory and the number of years they have worked there.
Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization says it pays researchers based on work completed in their work stations and their performance at international conferences.
Iran also pays scientists who have a research or teaching post, but the number is not publicly known.
A spokeswoman for the U.n. nuclear watchdog, which is in charge of monitoring Iran’s activities, said it does not have data on the salary of nuclear scientists.
The International Atomic Industry Council, an industry group that represents companies and universities that conduct research in the fields of nuclear science and engineering, did not respond to a request for comment.
Iran has had a series of major nuclear accidents in recent years, including one last year that killed nearly 1,000 people.
Iran officials have said they are not interested in weapons, but many analysts believe that Tehran may be building nuclear warheads.
Iran is also building a uranium enrichment facility to make fuel for a nuclear bomb.
Iran also says it is working on a weapon that could be mounted on a ballistic missile, which could be used in a war.
Iran was placed on the list of state sponsors of terrorism by the U to the Comprehensive Iran Sanctions, Accountability and Divestment Act in 2012 after it conducted two ballistic missile tests in defiance of a U. N. Security Council resolution.
The U. n.
Security Committee said Iran had “engaged in actions that undermine international norms, and violated its obligations under international law.”
Iran has previously said that it would only accept a nuclear deal that includes inspections and curbs on its nuclear program.
But U. s secretary of state, John Kerry, said in March that Iran could not be trusted to abide by the deal, and that Iran had not committed to eliminating its nuclear weapons program.
“Iran is the only country in the region that has been trying to develop nuclear weapons, and Iran is not going to let us make a deal that is so weak that it does nothing for Iran’s future nuclear program,” Kerry said.
Iran agreed to a nuclear pact with six major world powers in July that froze its nuclear activity for six months, and lifted restrictions on its economy, banking, and other aspects of its economy.
The accord has caused a major economic recession and diplomatic isolation for the Islamic republic, which says it wants to become a nuclear power and has criticized the international sanctions.
Iran says its nuclear efforts are aimed at building atomic weapons and is the sole supporter of a nuclear-weapon-free Middle East.
But experts say that Iran has also spent billions on developing nuclear centrifuges, the fuel rods that make a nuclear weapon.
