Iran awaits speedy response to nuclear option

Iran awaits swift response to nuclear work

Iran expects a brief response from earth powers on an accord to ship much of its minimal enriched uranium to Turkey as piece of a nuclear fuel swap package, the foreign ministry claimed on Tuesday.

Iran will notify the International Atomic Vitality Agency (IAEA) of the accord signed on Monday with Turkey and Brazil "in writing, through the common channels, inside a week," foreign ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast explained.

"We be expecting members of the Vienna party (the United States, France, Russia and the IAEA) to instantly announce their readiness" to implement the energy swap, he told reporters.

The IAEA claimed it has received the text of the joint declaration by Iran, Brazil and Turkey but was now ready for Tehran to notify it straight of what commitments it had undertaken.

"We are now expecting written notification from Iran that it agrees with the pertinent provisions involved in the declaration," IAEA spokeswoman Gill Tudor said on Monday.

The so-termed Vienna Team built an present final October to ship most of Iran's LEU out of the country in return for increased grade reactor fuel to be supplied by Russia and France.

Iran stalled on the deal insisting it desires a simultaneous swap on its individual soil, which was rejected by entire world powers.

Monday's accord signed in Tehran commits Iran to deposit 1,200 kilograms (2,640 pounds) of small enriched uranium (LEU) in Turkey in return for energy for a Tehran investigating reactor.

Mehmanparast proclaimed if the Islamic republic reaches agreement with the countries required in the preliminary IAEA-backed offer, it "will pave the way for extra nuclear cooperation."
