Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Legal and International Affairs Abbas Araqchi rejected Wall Street Journal claim that Iranian nuclear representatives agreed with US plan to clean up uranium remains in Natanz nuclear facility.
"Today, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) joint commission at the end of its session agreed with Iran’s plan to clean up sediments in Natanz enrichment facilities,” he said.
Under the plan, all deposits of enriched materials which are going to be removed from pipes will be excluded from 300 kilograms of enriched material stockpile of Iran and enable Iran to enrich larger volumes of materials,” said Araghchi among the reporters after the meeting.
WSJ previously claimed that Iran had agreed to lower its uranium reserves to less than 300 kilograms and remove all remaining uranium from Natanz site.
Araghchi highlighted that the approval of the Joint Commission, which was reached after month of negotiations by expert from Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), will be published on official website of Iran’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs after being translated.
