 • Iran's stockpile of 20 percent enriched uranium has declined for the first time in four years.
 • Iran is committed to the Joint Plan of Action, the deal it clinched with six major states in November.
 • Tehran has suspended 20 percent uranium enrichment since Jan. 20.

 

VIENNA, Feb. 20 (Xinhua) -- Iran's stockpile of 20 percent enriched uranium has declined for the first time in four years after Tehran implemented a landmark deal it signed with world powers, the UN nuclear agency said Thursday in a report.

Iran is committed to the Joint Plan of Action, the deal it clinched with six major states in November last year, according to a report of the International Atomic Energy Agency Xinhua obtained.

Tehran has suspended 20 percent uranium enrichment since Jan. 20, and began to dilute the enriched uranium stockpile.

Iran's reservation of uranium refined to a 20 percent dropped to 161 kg in February from about 196 kg in November, the IAEA report noted.

But the 5 percent purity uranium rose to 7,609 kg from 7,154 kg in November.

IAEA is playing the monitor role in the Iranian nuclear issue, while all sides involved in the Iranian nuclear talk is trying to achieve a ultimate solution over the tough issue.

The IAEA report was issued just hours after a first round of negotiations between Iran and six major states -- the United States, France, Germany, Britain, China and Russia -- were concluded in Vienna. The next round is set for March 17.

These negotiations aim to bring a final solution of Iranian nuclear issue.
