WSJ: US, Western Allies Urge Iran to Cut Enriched Uranium Stockpile

Nuclear powerplantThe U.S. and western allies have called on Iran to reduce its enriched uranium stockpile as part of the 2015 nuclear accord, the Wall Street Journal reported Thursday.

Laurence Norman writes western officials said plans to reduce Iran’s enriched uranium stockpile could prevent conflicts between U.S. and Iran over the implementation of the nuclear deal once President-elect Donald Trump takes office.

Iran, U.S., U.K., Russia, France, China and Germany signed the pact in 2015.

Iranian officials have discussed the U.S. government’s plans to extend economic sanctions against Iran for another decade which U.S. representatives approved this week, Norman reported.

The nuclear deal requires Iran to cap its enriched uranium stockpile at 661 pounds over the next 15 years and limit heavy water stockpile at 143.3 tons.
