Iran agrees on investigation into uranium mines

World Bulletin / News Desk

Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) agreed on Sunday on more points regarding last November's agreement to curb Iran's nuclear program, such as the international investigation into uranium mines.

International investigations into the Saghand uranium mines at Yazd province and Ardakan Yellowcake Production Plants (a substance plants use as fuel in atomic reactors) by the IAEA are among some of the agreed points between the parties.

The agreement also asks Tehran to present the form of an updated Design Inventory Questionnaire (DIQ) on the IR-40 heavy water reactor in the Arak province.

Under the Geneva deal in November last year, P5+1 countries (the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany) provided Iran with some relief of its sanctions in exchange for Iran agreeing to limit certain aspects of its nuclear activities during a six-month period.

It was also agreed that no further nuclear-related sanctions would be imposed on Iran within the same time frame.
