UK Replaces US in Redesigning Arak Reactor

By John Lee.

The head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) has said that the US has been replaced by the UK on the working group tasked with redesigning the Arak heavy water reactor in central Iran.

Ali Akbar Salehi (pictured) told IRIB that the US withdrawal from the nuclear deal has not impacted Iran’s peaceful nuclear activities, adding that the country’s nuclear projects “are progressing well and there is no problem.

Under the terms of the JCPOA, Iran agreed to redesign the 40-megawatt Arak research reactor to sharply cut its potential output of plutonium.
