MOSCOW (Sputnik) – On Saturday, The Wall Street Journal reported, citing its sources, that Iran had sent 11 metric tons of heavy water to one of its ports, allegedly to Oman. After the shipment, the Iranian stockpile of heavy water was supposed to decrease to 120 metric tons.
"Given the progress in negotiations with several companies and states on purchase of heavy water surplus, it was transported to Oman," Kamalvandi said, as quoted by the ISNA news agency.
Kamalvandi added that a part of the resource would be sold to the other states, however he did not specify the volumes of the shipped away surplus.
On July 14, 2015, Iran and the P5+1 group of world powers — the United States, the United Kingdom, France, China and Russia plus Germany — signed the JCPOA, ensuring the peaceful nature of Tehran's nuclear program in return for the gradual lifting of sanctions. The agreement came into force on January 16, after the IAEA submitted a report confirming the readiness of Iran's authorities to implement a program to reduce the country’s nuclear potential.
