Tehran, Moscow to Hold Talks on Fordow Tehran, Moscow to Hold Talks on Fordow

Tehran and Moscow will hold consultations on nuclear cooperation in the spring and the project to repurpose Iran’s Fordow nuclear facility will be on the agenda, among other topics, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov told Sputnik on Wednesday.
After Iran started enriching uranium in Fordow late last year, in line with reducing its obligations under the nuclear deal, Rosatom’s subsidiary TVEL suspended its work on modifying two cascades of gas centrifuges in Fordow to produce stable isotopes for medical purposes, since it is technically impossible to produce stable isotopes in the same facility.
“We are conducting consultations on various aspects of our nuclear cooperation. Rosatom and the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran are coordinating their schedules directly. We are not dragging this on, while it is clear that the situation has not improved, compared to the moment when the project was suspended. But we will hold consultations,” Ryabkov said.
