LEU Transfer to Russia by Yearend

Transportation of over 8.5 tons of Iranian enriched uranium to Russia is planned to be completed by the end of the year, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said on Tuesday.
“The prospect of implementing the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action [the official title of the July 14 nuclear deal between Iran and the six world powers] looks positive in general. Until the end of the year, we will most likely complete transporting low-enriched uranium from Iran to Russia—more than 8.5 tons,” Ryabkov, who served as Russia’s representative at the talks on the Iranian nuclear program, was quoted as saying by Russian news agency TASS.
The diplomat noted that no political difficulties are expected when implementing the JCPOA.
According to Ryabkov, the implementation day of the nuclear pact may occur at the latest in the first quarter of 2016 and probably in January.
“I believe the implementation day [of the JCPOA] may take place if not in January, then definitely in the first quarter of 2016.”
