News Picks : Iran eliminates enriched uranium stockpile

By: Physics Today
21 July 2014

BBC: A breakthrough has occurred in the negotiations between Iran and the P5 + 1 nations (the US, the UK, France, Russia, China, and Germany) concerning Iran’s stockpile of enriched uranium. Iran has converted all of its 20% enriched uranium—the level needed to make nuclear weapons—into more harmless forms that can be used for other purposes, such as in nuclear power stations and medical facilities. In exchange, some $2.8 billion in frozen Iranian funds will be unblocked. Although just three weeks ago no resolution appeared to be in sight, the latest development shows, according to some correspondents, that Iran’s leaders are serious in continuing the negotiations, which are set to resume in September.
