TEHRAN (ISNA)- Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) rejected reports on removing core of Arak Reactor.

Some initial steps have been taken regarding Arak reactor, but no measure has been completed on removing core of Arak Reactor, the AEOI said in statement.

His remarks came after some media said that the core of the reactor has taken out and its empty space has been filled with concrete.

On July 14, 2015, Iran and the P5+1 group of countries – the United States, Britain, France, China and Russia plus Germany – finalized the text of the JCPOA on Tehran's nuclear program in the Austrian capital, Vienna.

Under the agreement, Iran will accept restrictions on its nuclear program in return for the removal of sanctions imposed on Tehran by the US and the EU.
