Selling 70 tons of heavy water barometer of Iran's nuclear capabilities: Senior MP

Economy - Iran's selling of 70 tons of heavy water in the global markets sets a reliable benchmark for the country's nuclear capabilities, says the head of the Committee for Foreign Policy and National Security in the Parliament.

'Based on the nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, Iran is only allowed to store a limited amount of heavy water produced in the country,' Alaeddin Boroujerdi said on Wednesday.

'So as it has been announced by Iran's Atomic Energy Organization, the Islamic Republic has sold the surplus of the heavy water in its possession, amounting 70 tons, to other countries over a period of seven months,' Boroujerdi said.

'Despite all the restrictions faced by Iran, supplying the heavy water in the world markets is going to be a good barometer of the Islamic Republic's nuclear capabilities,' he said.

The chairman of Iran parliament's Committee for Foreign Policy and National Security also said that the heavy water produced in the country meets the best global standards and even the United States is among the customer's of Iran's heavy water.

'Other developing nations can also buy the heavy water manufactured in the Islamic Republic,' Boroujerdi said.
