Iran thanks Turkey and Brazil for uranium swap deal


Ahmad Cenneti, the Secretary General of the Iranian Constitutional Guards Council (Shura-i Nagehban), on Friday thanked Turkey and Brazil for their roles in signing of uranium swap deal.

In Friday prayer at the garden of Tehran University, Cenneti described signing of the deal as "successful" and noted, "I thank two friendly countries Iran and Brazil".

Cenneti said the ball was now at the court of the West, noting that they did not have the word to utter anymore.

Cenneti said Westerns came to a deadlock with the deal and their allegations against Iran were let down.

Foreign ministers of Turkey, Iran and Brazil signed a deal on May 17 where Iran committed to give the 1200kg of 3.5% enriched uranium to Turkey in exchange for 20 percent enriched uranium it will receive from Western countries to be used as fuel in the nuclear research reactor in Tehran. Tehran will receive the enriched uranium from the Vienna Group, comprising of the U.S., France, Russia and International Atomic Energy Agency, in Turkey.

The deal has to be approved by the Vienna Group (U.S., Russia, France and International Atoic Energy Agency) to enter into force.
