TEHRAN, July 13. /TASS/. Iran will sell its strategic nuclear materials to other countries, head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran Ali Akbar Salehi said on Monday.

"We plan to sell our strategic nuclear products, including uranium and heavy water. And this means that we will become one of those countries that use their peaceful atomic technologies for commerce purposes and enter international market," Salehi said.

Talking about coordinating the final comprehensive agreement on Iran’s nuclear program, Salehi said that considerable progress was reached at talks between Tehran and P5+1 group of international mediators. "All technical issues have already been solved. The agreement envisages laying basis for sharing international experience with Iran in such spheres as commercializing the nuclear sector, including nuclear power plant construction and fuel production," Salehi added.

Iranian media reported earlier today that the final agreement on Iran’s nuclear program will be reached in Vienna later on Monday. The final round of talks between Iran and the six powers (US, UK, Russia, China, France and Germany) on Teheran’s nuclear program is currently underway in the Austrian capital. A final comprehensive agreement on the Iranian nuclear dossier was originally expected to be elaborated by June 30 but the negotiating process has been extended until July 7.

Last Tuesday, EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said that the deadline has been extended once again as the sides need several more days to reach the final comprehensive agreement.
