Russia: No Heavy Water Deal Concluded Yet

Russia: No Heavy Water Deal Concluded Yet Russia: No Heavy Water Deal Concluded Yet

Moscow is reviewing Tehran’s offer to sell 40 tons of heavy water to Russia, a Russian Foreign Ministry official said on Tuesday.

Moscow and Iran have not yet reached an agreement on the purchase of 40 tons of Iran’s heavy water from its nuclear power facilities and negotiations are needed, the ministry’s head of the Department of Arms Non-Proliferation and Control said.

“No agreement on this issue has been reached; so far this issue is only being reviewed. Negotiations are needed in order to work out conditions that would be acceptable for both parties,” Mikhail Ulyanov told RIA Novosti.

On Monday, Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman, Hossein Jaberi Ansari, said Iran was in talks with Russia on the sale of its heavy water from its nuclear power projects.

Ansari noted that several countries among the six world powers (the US, Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany), which reached the July 2015 nuclear deal with Iran, have shown interest in purchasing the heavy water.
