Turkey says ready to store Iran's nuclear energy

Turkish Energy & Natural Resources Minister Taner Yildiz said on Tuesday that the center in Turkey was ready to store Iran's nuclear energy.

There is no technical problem in Turkey about the issue, Yildiz told reporters regarding uranium swap deal of Iran.

Yildiz said that Turkey undertook its responsibilities about the issue, adding that Turkey was very determined to restore peace in its region and the world.

Yildiz said that the nuclear center in Cekmece district of Istanbul was ready for storage of Iran's nuclear energy.

Foreign ministers of Turkey, Iran and Brazil signed a deal on May 17 where Iran committed to give the 1200kg of 3.5 percent 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 in Turkey from the Vienna Group, comprising of the U.S., France, Russia and International Atomic Energy Agency.

The deal has to be approved by the Vienna Group to enter into force.
