Iran’s Fordow nuclear plant

TEHRAN, Jan. 20 (MNA) – Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization Spokesman has said IAEA inspectors have been granted access to Iran’s nuclear sites in Fordow and Natanz.

“Iranian experts and the IAEA are having expert discussions and the suspension of 20% enrichment will probably start this afternoon,” said Behrouz Kamalvandi to reporters.

“The suspension of the 20 per cent enrichment will start after the expert level talks between the IAEA and Iranian experts and the interim deal will take effect. The talks will probably continue into Monday evening and the implementation will start later in Monday,” he detailed on the issue.

“The inspectors group includes 8-9 people visiting Arak heavy water complex in 3 groups,” added he, and that “Arak sites inspection reports will be sent every month to the agency.”

According to the interim deal, Powers would start the agreement to ease the sanctions on Iran as soon as Iran starts the implementation of the deal on January 20 for the six upcoming months.
