Surplus of heavy water could stay in Iran: Atomic Energy Organization

Tehran, June 7, IRNA – The Islamic Republic, based on its JCPOA commitments, should solely put on sale the surplus of its heavy water, says Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization.

Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization made the comments on Tuesday in reaction to some commentary broadcast by a foreign satellite television network.

In case there are no good international customers for the heavy water produced in Iran, the surplus of the product could stay with the Islamic Republic regardless of time restrictions, until an agreement is signed with an appropriate customer.

Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization also said that there is no use for the heavy water in Bushehr Nuclear Power Plant.
