A senior administration official of the United States of America has said that the country is close to procuring 32 metric tons of heavy water from Iran. The material was described as a key component of nuclear reactors.

According to the official’s statement via CNN, the goal of the transaction is to get the heavy water out of Iran in the same way the Iran nuclear deal compelled Iran to ship its supply of enriched uranium to Russia.

Reducing its stockpile of nuclear materials like enriched uranium and heavy water is a key component of the Iran nuclear deal.

The Federation of American Scientists has also confirmed that “The importance of heavy water to a nuclear proliferator is that it provides one more route to produce plutonium for use in (nuclear) weapons.”

It was gathered that the U.S. will expend $8.6 million for the project.

The U.S. official however disclosed that the procedure might be disinterested of revenue as the Department of Energy will resell the heavy water to lab facilities in the country. The Oak Ridge National Lab was mentioned as inclusive.

The U.S. reportedly has no inventory to use for science and research because of the country’s inability to domestically make heavy water.

According to a Republican Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan in a release reproved the intended acquisition. “For Tehran, the nuclear agreement is the gift that keeps on giving.” He said.

Ryan moved on to say that the deal would “directly subsidize Iran’s nuclear program,” calling it “yet another unprecedented concession to the world’s leading state-sponsor of terrorism.”

Ed Royce, House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman also crashed the deal.

Royce, who is a California Republican, accounted in a statement, “The Obama administration is handing Iran’s radical regime more cash” and that transaction “encourages Iran to produce more heavy water to sell — with a stamp of U.S. approval — on the international market.”

CNN has it that the U.S. continues to maintain some financial restrictions on Iran that prohibit imports and ban the use of U.S. dollars in trade with Iran.

Nonetheless, the administration official said the new arrangement complied the administration’s official term for the Iran nuclear deal with all elements of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.

“Treasury has the authority to authorize U.S. government activities related to implementation of the JCPOA. This is one of those activities.”

While the official revealed that current sanctions law prohibited Iranian imports, he stated that the same law permitted President Barack Obama “to create regulatory exceptions to those prohibitions.”
