Positive Signal for Diplomacy
IAEA has told Reuters that Tehran has begun using up small amounts of its 20-percent enriched uranium stockpile into nuclear fuel for its reactors. Iran’s move is seen as a positive signal for diplomacy ahead of an important meeting with the world’s major powers in Almaty, Kazakhstan on 26 February. (Reuters, 11 February)
Iran seems to be deliberately keeping its enriched uranium stockpiles below the bar needed for potential weapons-grade material, Reuters reported.
