At the Iranian nuclear facility in Natanz, there was an “incident” in the power distribution system. This was reported by the Fars agency with reference to the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI).
Details of the incident at the facility were not specified. According to the official representative of the organization, Behruz Kamalvandi, no one was hurt.
“Fortunately, the incident did not result in human injury or environmental pollution,” he said.
A day earlier, a workshop for the production of advanced centrifuges was opened in Natanz. At the same time, testing and gasification of new generation centrifuges began.
Since April 6, negotiations are underway in Vienna to restore the “nuclear deal” with Iran. The sanctions and nuclear commissions should draw up a list of steps to return to full implementation of the JCPOA. In addition to representatives of the United States and Iran, delegations from other JCPOA participants – Russia, Germany, China, France and Great Britain – also took part.
On April 10, the United States announced that it was ready to lift the sanctions that run counter to the nuclear deal, but the demand of the Iranian authorities to lift all the sanctions is impracticable.
In 2015, Iran and six international mediators – the United States, Britain, Germany, China, France and Russia – signed a Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on the nuclear program. The deal provided for the gradual lifting of sanctions on Iran in exchange for a reduction in its nuclear program.
In 2018, under President Donald Trump, the United States pulled out of the deal, accusing Iran of violating the agreement, and renewed sanctions against it. After that, Tehran refused to comply with the terms of the deal.
