Iran scales down plutonium production plans

Published: 06.12.14, 12:48 / Israel News

Iran is scaling down plutonium production plans at its partially built heavy-water reactor, saying the facility will make significantly smaller amounts of waste plutonium than what is required for the core of a nuclear weapon.


Nuclear chief Ali Akbar Salehi told the official IRNA news agency late Wednesday that instead of 10 kilograms (22 pounds) as initially planned, the Arak reactor will make less than 1 kilogram (2.2 pounds). (AP)
