Iran agrees to move enriched uranium to Russia

Iran said it will allow international inspectors into a newly disclosed uranium enrichment plant.

Iran has agreed to a deal that would move most of its declared stockpile of enriched uranium to Russia for further refinement, before it is delivered back to Iran for peaceful uses at a research reactor in Tehran.

From Russia’s perspective, it is now a key player in global nuclear politics.

Timothy Frye, the director of the Harriman Institute on Russian and Eastern European studies at Columbia University, joins Martin Savidge to discuss the significance of the new deal and Russia’s motivations.
