February 25 2017 â€“ RUSSIA and Iran have agreed a roadmap for joint production of nuclear fuel, Ali Akbar Salehi, the head of Iranâ€™s Atomic Energy Organization (AEOI) said Saturday in an interview with a local news agency.
â€śJoint fuel production by Russia and Iran was one of the most useful topics that had been discussed during nuclear talks [with Moscow]and eventually finalized. We said we needed Russiaâ€™s assistance in this sphere,â€ť Salehi told ISNA.
It took the countries over two years to work out the agreement, Salehi added. The roadmap for cooperation was drafted by AEOI deputy chief Behrouz Kamalvandi during his visit to Moscow last January. –Sputnik
