AEOI Capable of Redesigning Arak Reactor

The AEOI is capable of redesigning the heavy water research reactor in Arak under the 2015 nuclear deal without the participation of other signatories, says a senior official. 
"Iranian engineers and experts are capable of redesigning the Arak reactor without the assistance of other countries," Behrouz Kamalvandi, spokesman of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, said in an interview with ISNA published on Friday. 
He made the comments after western diplomats told Reuters that US President Donald Trump's decision to pull out of the Iran deal—which triggers the possibility of sanctions against the AEOI—may hinder the project. 
Under the nuclear accord, the Arak reactor was to be redesigned to render it unable to make bomb-grade plutonium under normal operation. Iran has denied pursuing nuclear weapons.
