Iran Once Again Exceeds A Nuclear Deal Limit -IAEA Report

.1 ton over the limit for heavy water, and this is the second (Febuary .9 tons over) time that Iran has exceeded the limit.

I wonder if this is feeling out the repercussions of exceeding the deal, or are they playing chicken with a Lame Duck Pres?

I wonder if we will see this happen in, ohhh let's say 2 months?




VIENNA, Nov 9 (Reuters) - Iran has exceeded a soft limit on sensitive material set under its nuclear deal with major powers, the U.N. atomic watchdog said on Wednesday, hours after Donald Trump - who has strongly criticized the agreement - won the U.S. presidential election.

It is the second time Tehran has surpassed the 130 metric tonne threshold for heavy water, a material used as a moderator in reactors like Iran's unfinished one at Arak, since the deal was put in place in January. It had 130.1 tonnes of the material on Tuesday, the watchdog said.

The last time Iran overstepped that mark was brief, passing without major criticism from the other countries that signed the nuclear deal last year. But there are questions about whether the incoming Trump administration will react to such incidents the same way.

"On 2 November 2016, the director general expressed concerns related to Iran's stock of heavy water to the vice president of Iran and president of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, ... Ali Akbar Salehi," the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said in a confidential report seen by Reuters.

The IAEA is policing the restrictions placed on Iran's nuclear activities under the deal it signed with the United States, Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany. The agreement also lifted international sanctions against Tehran.

Iran told the agency it would prepare to transfer 5 tonnes of heavy water out of the country, as provided for in the deal, and a senior diplomat said Iran planned to carry out the shipment in the coming days.

A U.S. State Department spokesman, speaking at a regular news briefing in Washington, confirmed Iran's intention to export the excess heavy water.

"It's important to note that Iran made no effort to hide this, hide what it was doing from the IAEA," spokesman Mark Toner said.

Rather than setting a strict limit on heavy water as it does for enriched uranium, the deal estimates Iran's needs to be 130 tonnes and says any amount beyond the country's needs "will be made available for export to the international market".

Trump has called the agreement, one of President Barack Obama's top achievements, "the worst deal ever negotiated" and said he would "police that contract so tough they (the Iranians) don't have a chance".

Iran also exceeded the heavy-water limit in February, with 130.9 tonnes. (Additional reporting by Arshad Mohammed in Washington; Reporting by Francois Murphy; Editing by Richard Balmforth and Paul Simao)

I think the next administration will take an interest in making sure the deal is kept, and by default Iran will as well.

Trump is hoping Iran will violate the deal so that he can say the deal is null and void.

" Iran President: Trump Cannot Dismantle Nuclear Deal "


Iran president Hassan Rouhani said that his understanding was it was not possible for President-Elect Donald Trump to change the Iran nuclear deal.

"Iran's understanding of the nuclear deal was that the accord was not concluded with one country or government but was approved by a resolution of the U.N. Security Council and there is no possibility that it can be changed by a single government," Rouhani said on Iran state television, according to The Times of Israel.



Wanna Bet ? The Patriot Act gives the President the Authority to Change that Agreement if it is Deemed to be a Threat to National Security , which it Is . The U.N. is gonna Learn REAL FAST that this President does not Give a Damn what they Think when it comes to our Nations National security .

Appears to have been done.

Jan 21, 2017, Trump can have a chat with Iran.

Maybe have him next to a B-1 with engines running.

If they only have 1 reactor that needs heavy water and that plant is not built why do they need the heavy water?

I mean aside from a nuclear weapons program.

Once again Iran is no threat to anyone. How long has it been since iran threatened anyone?

For how long has iran been under threat from the us and their owners near Iran?

The only thing Iran is guilty of is sitting on top of a moun tian of oil that the US has spent decades trying to bag for itself.

You mean aside from them wanting to wipe Israel off the map? By the way thats a threat.

Moving beyond that the last time Iran threatened other countries was on November 2nd, 2016.

ATS - Iran claims it's sending elite fighters to infiltrate US, Europe

The above link is also a threat.

I am surprised you didn't know the above info.
