Classified Document Reveals Iran May Receive Advanced Nuclear Tech Under Deal
A classified annex to the emerging nuclear deal reveals that the P5+1 powers have promised to provide Iran with advanced nuclear technology, the Associated Press (AP) reported today.
To that end, the draft, entitled “Civil Nuclear Cooperation,” promises to supply Iran with light-water nuclear reactors instead of its nearly completed heavy-water facility at Arak, which could produce enough plutonium for several bombs a year if completed as planned. …
Outlining plans to modify that heavy-water reactor, the draft, dated June 19, offers to “establish an international partnership” to rebuild it into a less proliferation-prone facility while leaving Iran in “the leadership role as the project owner and manager.”
The eight-page draft also promises “arrangements for the assured supply and removal of nuclear fuel for each reactor provided,” and offers help in the “construction and effective operation” of the reactors and related hardware. It offers cooperation with Iran in the fields of nuclear safety, nuclear medicine, research, nuclear waste removal and other peaceful applications.
The AP further notes that the document “has bracketed text in dozens of places where disagreements remain.” The revelation of this offer comes on the heels of a defiant speech by Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, which emphasized a refuse inspections of military sites, long term restrictions on Iran’s nuclear research and development and demanding immediate sanctions relief.
