A ship carrying more than 11,000kg of low-enriched uranium materials has left Iran for Russia in an Iranian step towards honouring a July 14 nuclear deal with major powers, the US says.
Under the landmark nuclear accord, certain US, European Union and UN sanctions are to be removed in exchange for Iran accepting long-term curbs on a nuclear program that the West has suspected was aimed at creating a nuclear bomb.
A key provision of the agreement, negotiated by Iran with the US, Britain, China, France, Russia and Germany, is Tehran's commitment to reduce its stockpile of low-enriched uranium to below 300kg. If much further refined, low-enriched uranium can yield fissile material for nuclear weapons.
