The Iranian Islamic Republic News Agency is reporting that the Iranian government is spending up to $35 million in the next two years to purchase a new supply of ovens. These high-capacity ovens are believed to be part of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's blueprints for the "New Iran Project."
Under the plan, up to three thousand ovens will be purchased from various nations. While some are new and will be built in Russia, most are second-hand, purchased from Germany. These ovens have a maximum temperature of 8,000 degrees Fahrenheit and on average have a twenty-five square foot capacity.
The intended usage of these ovens are unknown as of yet, but the IRNA is reporting that they are vital to the future of the Middle East.
The United States has taken a reserved view of the purchases, with White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs stating only, "We have no comment at this time."
With Iran facing a massive debt due to falling oil prices, the wisdom of buying over $30 million in ovens was criticized by reformist members of the Majlis. However, the government is going ahead with the purchase, stating that it is of the "utmost importance."
The ovens are slated to become operational on July 29, or the anniversary of the Twelfth Imam's birth.
