Rosatom Suspends Work At Iran’s Nuclear Plant

Russian state nuclear company Rosatom has suspended work on revamping a factory at Iran’s Fordow nuclear complex due to an issue with uranium compatibility. In November, the United States said it would cease waiving punitive sanctions related to the Fordow plant from Dec. 15 – a move Russia condemned – after Tehran resumed uranium enrichment at the underground site in contravention of a nuclear deal it signed with world powers in 2015. European countries have tried to salvage the nonproliferation agreement, which requires Iran to restrain its enrichment program, but Tehran has increasingly distanced itself from the accord since the United States withdrew last year.
