Isotope Production Center Planned at Fordow

Iran will build a center for the production of stable isotopes at the Fordow facility in two years, Russia’s representative at the International Atomic Energy Agency said.
"The timeframe has been envisaged by a work plan. It’s going to take about two years according to current assessments," Vladimir Voronkov also told TASS on Friday after the Vienna meeting of a joint commission comprising representatives of Iran and P5+1 states (five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany).
Voronkov, who headed the Russian delegation to the meeting, said issues related to the implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action were also on the agenda.
"Russia jointly with Iran made a presentation in the spirit of transparency on the production of stable isotopes at the Fordow facility in Iran. The post-sanctions program was also actively discussed," he said.
The Russian diplomat noted that the next meeting would take place in the next three months in strict compliance with JCPOA. Iran and P5+1 reached the final agreement in July last year, under which the Fordow plant should be converted into a nuclear and technological center with no more than 1,044 first generation centrifuges, which would no longer produce any uranium.
The country is permitted to use 348 centrifuges for the production of stable isotopes for the next 15 years.
Fordow Fuel Enrichment Plant is a uranium enrichment facility located
20 miles (32 km) northeast of the Iranian city of Qom.
