Baeedinejad: Iran oped for trade of enriched uranium

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, Jan 19, IRNA -- Deputy foreign minister for Euro-American Affairs said on Tuesday that Iran opted for trade of enriched uranium with other countries from three options.

Hamid Baeedinejad made the remarks to a Specialized Conference on Final Fate of JCPOA.

Responding to a question on sales of Iran's enriched heavy water to other countries and weather using the word 'sale' is a cover-up for the exit of those materials from Iran, he complained about negative attitude about the deal saying it emanated from political atmosphere and mistrust.

In the gathering held in Allameh Tabatabaie University, Baeedinejad said that the rival political factions try to convey the idea that Iran has intentionally tried to give many concessions and the materials that have been sent abroad are wrongly titled as sold materials.

'In the text of the JCPOA there are three methods for dealing with the enriched materials in Iran, the first one was transferring them abroad, the second one was diluting them, and the third method, which was very difficult was selling them in return for receiving yellow cake,' he said.

Baeedinejad said that Iran selected the 3rd choice in accordance with the relative proposed method in the JCPOA, Iran managed to buy the yellow cake it needed as well.
