An Iranian lawmaker said Thursday that the Islamic Republic has begun construction on a new nuclear plant in Isfahan, where a mysterious explosion reportedly occurred at the site of a nuclear facility last month.

Avaz Heidarpour, A member of Iran's Majlis Committee on National Security and Foreign Policy, was quoted by Press TV as saying that the site was under construction in the city of Shahreza in the Isfahan province. According to Heidarpour, the new plant's objective will be to supply the country's demand  for civilian nuclear products.

The Iranian lawmaker stated that the facility would be completed within the next three years.

He said that the site would help serve Iran's medical and agricultural needs.
