Heavy Water Exported to USHeavy Water Exported to US

Iran has exported heavy water, a key component for a kind of nuclear reactor, to the US as part of the nuclear agreement with major powers. The Tuesday report quotes Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi as saying Tehran has exported 32 tons of heavy water to the US since the agreement was implemented on Jan. 16, ISNA reported. Under the deal, Tehran agreed to limit its nuclear activities in exchange for the lifting of sanctions. Iran is allowed to use heavy water in its modified Arak reactor, but must sell any excess supply on the international market.
