Iran to ship nine tones of enriched uranium to Russia

on Sat Dec 19, 2015 4:53 pm
Iran will export most of its enriched uranium to Russia in the coming days as it rushes to implement a nuclear deal and secure relief from international sanctions.

Censor.NET reports citing Russian BBC.

Drastically reducing its stock of enriched uranium, which can be used in nuclear weapons, was at the heart of the deal Iran reached in July with a group of six world powers.

Under its terms, Iran must cut its stockpile to around 300 kg and mothball most of the centrifuges that produce the enriched fuel. It must also remove the core of a heavy water reactor at Arak so it cannot be used to produce plutonium, another potential bomb-making source.

Once the United Nations verifies those steps, international sanctions will be lifted, giving Iran access to global markets for the first time in years and opening a lifeline for its ailing economy.

On Wednesday, Tehran's envoy to the United Nations' International Atomic Energy Agency said Iran was working to complete the requirements in the next two to three weeks, after the UN watchdog closed its investigation of Iran's past nuclear activities.

IAEA chief Yukiya Amano, responsible for verifying that Tehran has taken the necessary steps, said in an interview that it is "not impossible" that sanctions could be lifted in January.
