(Worthy News) - Russia has agreed to help Iran upgrade its uranium-enriching centrifuges, Iran's nuclear chief said.
Moscow has confirmed its "preparedness to cooperate and improve Iran’s centrifuges to produce stable isotopes," Ali Akbar Salehi, head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, said Tuesday, according to the Iranian semi-state Fars news agency. Salehi was speaking after talks in Vienna with Sergey Kirienko, who heads Russia's State Atomic Energy Corporation.
Salehi said Russia had undertaken to help "enhance" Iran's centrifuges as part of July's nuclear deal between the P5+1 world powers and Iran.
"Assistance to enhance the designing of our existing centrifuge machines in a way that they can produce stable isotopes is among the Russians' undertakings (based on the July 14 nuclear agreement between Tehran and the world powers)," Fars quoted Salehi saying. "They are among the most powerful and pioneering countries in the world in this field, and they have announced their preparedness to cooperate and improve Iran’s centrifuges to produce stable isotopes."
