TOKYO, November 2. /TASS/. Iran has started implementing the agreements on its nuclear program, including by cutting the number of centrifuges for uranium enrichment, head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization Ali Akbar Salehi told Japan’s Kyodo news agency on Monday.
"We have launched preliminary work," Salehi, who is currently on a visit to Japan, said. "In particular, we are cutting the number of centrifuges, including at the Natanz nuclear facility. However, the full implementation of the agreement will require time," he added.
TASS reported earlier that during his visit to Tokyo Salehi will hold talks on cooperation in the sphere of nuclear security. During last negotiations that took place in Tehran in October between the foreign ministers of Iran and Japan Javad Zarif and Fumio Kishida, the sides agreed to step up cooperation in the sphere of nuclear technologies and nuclear security. The final document adopted after the meeting defined the framework of possible cooperation, in particular, on working out measures in case of incidents in nuclear centers and on assessing facilities under construction on their adherence to the norms of seismostability and security. The document also envisages sending Japanese experts to Iran and developing educational programs.
On 14 July 2015, the P5+1 group of international mediators (five permanent members of UN Security Council — US, UK, Russia, China, France — and Germany) and Iran signed the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action on Tehran’s nuclear program. Iran will not produce weapons-grade plutonium and limit its stockpile of uranium enriched to 3.67% to 300 kilograms for the next 15 years. Tehran also agreed to modernize its nuclear facilities and use them for exclusively peaceful purposes.
Sanctions will be gradually removed from Iran. The arms embargo imposed by UN Security Council will be kept in place for five years, ban for supplying ballistic missile technologies to Iran — for eight years. Experts from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will monitor nuclear facilities in Iran for the next 25 years. If any points of the agreement are violated by Iran, sanctions against the country will be renewed.
On July 20, the corresponding resolution on Iran’s nuclear program agreement was adopted by UN Security Council.
