Russia to Deliver 2nd Batch of Enriched Uranium for Tehran Nuclear Reactor Russia to Deliver 2nd Batch of Enriched Uranium for Tehran Nuclear Reactor

Iran will soon receive a second batch of 20 percent enriched uranium that was kept in Russia under the nuclear deal and will be used in the Tehran nuclear reactor, Behrouz Kamalvandi, spokesman for Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, said Saturday.
"When we signed the nuclear agreement, we stopped production of 20 percent fuel and sent the excessive fuel to Russia in 10 batches. We received the first batch nearly seven months ago and the second is about to be transferred soon. Any of these batches can be used for nearly one year and therefore we have 20 percent fuel for the Tehran Reactor for at least seven to eight years," Kamalvandi was quoted by the Mizan News Agency as saying.
