VIENNA, April 09. /ITAR-TASS/. Iran is determined to eliminate the international community’s concerns over the heavy water reactor in Arak, a source in the Iranian delegation has said.
“The Arak reactor is one of the important issues that we are discussing in Vienna,” the source said. “Iran has agreed to lift the existing concerns.”
The source added that both processes and technical facilities would undergo change.
The second final day of talks between Iran and the P5+1 negotiators (five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany) started in Vienna on Wednesday, April 9. Negotiating parties expanded their delegations, since talks became much more detailed as compared with previous rounds. The negotiators decided to focus on issues that had not been discussed in detail yet. In March, the interlocutors succeeded to find preliminary solutions on four of nine packages of issues, particularly uranium enrichment, operation of the heavy research reactor in Arak, international nuclear co-operation and lifting the pressure of sanctions against Iran.
On Tuesday, April 8, it became known that Iran has started preparations for legal arrangement of the final agreement with the six world powers in advance.
“We have a complex and challenging work of drafting and codifying the final agreement ahead,” the source said. “Understanding that, a decision has been made to involve well-known legal experts specializing in international law in this process.” “This decision is aimed at helping the parties in their challenging work in the forthcoming period,” the source added. “To date, there is an insight that it is possible to meet the deadline until July 20.”
