TEHRAN (ISNA)- Russia will begin removing Iran's enriched uranium in the next few days, Russia's permanent envoy to the International Atomic Energy Agency and other international organizations in Vienna said Wednesday.

According to Vladimir Voronkov, there are two options in handling Iran's enriched uranium: diluting it to its natural level or removing it from Iran.

"Currently the option of removal is working. Logistics have been designed and (the uranium) will leave the port in Bushehr. In the next few days it will be loaded up and sent to the Russian Federation," Voronkov told RIA Novosti.
