IAEA: Iran Meeting All Commitments in Nuclear Deal

•, by Jason Ditz
The six-month interim deal is now two months old, and the IAEA confirmed Iran has made no attempt to enrich any uranium beyond 3.5% since then, and continues to reduce its stockpile of 20 percent enriched uranium per the deal.
Though it’s not a violation of anything in the deal, the report also said Iran’s work on a facility to convert its 3.5% uranium to an oxide form has not been completed, and analysts say that probably means there stockpile of that level is up somewhat.
Iran uses 3.5% uranium in the Russian-built Bushehr Power Plant, and 20 percent enriched uranium rods in their US-built Tehran Research Reactor (TRR). The aging TRR produces medical isotopes, and will eventually be replaced by a facility at Arak that uses unenriched uranium, though its construction is stalled by the negotiations.
