Iran to sell 10 tons of enriched uranium to Russia: Deputy FM

A document has been signed on redesigning Arak Reactor and Iran is currently in talks with China for signing an agreement on modernizing the reactor, Araghchi further said.

Iran’s deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi said on Monday that after adoption of a resolution by the IAEA Board of Governors, Iran is expected to sell its enriched uranium to Russia and receive 140 tons of uranium ore in exchange for 10 tons of its enriched uranium.

The IAEA Board of Governors is expected to adopt a resolution on Tuesday which closes the so-called possible military dimensions (PMD) of Iran’s nuclear program, paving the way for the implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) reached between Iran and the six world powers in July.

Nowzar Shafiei, the rapporteur of Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Committee, told IRNA on Monday that during his presence before the legislative committee earlier in the day, Araghchi also briefed the lawmakers on redesigning the Arak Reactor.

A document has been signed on redesigning Arak Reactor and Iran is currently in talks with China for signing an agreement on modernizing the reactor, Araghchi was quoted as saying by Shafiei.

It seems that JCPOA will become implemented as of next month, Araghchi said.
