Iran’s nuclear chief said Tuesday that Russia is prepared to help “enhance” the country’s uranium-enriching centrifuges.
Iran’s Fars News Agency reported that Ali Akbar Salehi, who heads the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, spoke of Russia’s cooperation following a meeting with the director of Moscow’s Rosatom State Atomic Energy Corporation, Sergey Kirienko, in Vienna, Austria.
Salehi explained that Russia will help “improve Iran’s centrifuges” as part of the nuclear agreement brokered by Tehran and world powers in July.
“Assistance to enhance the designing of our existing centrifuge machines in a way that they can produce stable isotopes is among the Russians’ undertakings (based on the July 14 nuclear agreement between Tehran and the world powers) and they are among the most powerful and pioneering countries in the world in this field and they have announced their preparedness to cooperate and improve Iran’s centrifuges to produce stable isotopes,” Salehi said Tuesday.
