Iran, Switzerland Discuss Nuclear Safety

Iran’s top nuclear safety official met his Swiss counterpart in Bern on Saturday to further bilateral cooperation.
Head of Iranian Center for Nuclear Safety System Hojjatollah Salehi and Director General of the Swiss Federal Nuclear Safety Inspectorate Hans Wanner followed up on the implementation of a memorandum of understanding signed last September, IRNA reported.
The agreement followed discussions between Iranian nuclear officials and Wanner during his visit to Tehran in March 2016, when he was accompanying then Swiss president, Johann Schneider-Ammann.
The two officials agreed that a team of Swiss nuclear safety experts visit Iran this fall to start collaborating with their Iranian counterparts.
The agreement came in the wake of the landmark 2015 nuclear deal involving Iran and P5+1(the US, Britain, France, China and Russia, plus Germany).
The deal, which came into force in January, envisaged Tehran scaling back its nuclear program in return for the lifting of all nuclear-related sanctions.
The deal urges cooperation on civil applications of nuclear energy between Iran and the international community.
