EU Foreign Policy Chief Josef Borrell said during a recent visit to Tehran that the Vienna talks will resume with the aim of reinstating the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). He made the comments at a joint press conference following talks with Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian. Under the JCPOA between Iran the P5+1 group of countries (the USA, UK, France, Russia, and China plus Germany) Iran agreed to limit its nuclear development in return for the lifting of sanctions. After former US President Donald Trump withdrew from the deal and reimposed sanctions in 2018, Iran began to gradually roll back on the restrictions imposed by the JCPOA after the European parties to the agreement failed to put any measures in place to mitigate those sanctions.

International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Director General Rafael Mariano Grossi attended the World Economic Forum (WEF) Annual Meeting in Davos on 24 and 25 May. Nuclear provides the opportunity for a faster transition to a low-carbon energy future and supports the shift to a hydrogen economy, he told participants. In an opinion piece on the WEF website, Grossi said that nuclear is gaining increasing support in the battle against climate change, that reaching net-zero carbon emissions will require a doubling of nuclear capacity, and that technology such as small modular reactors (SMRs) and used fuel repositories are increasing nuclear accessibility and safety.

Russia-supplied Bushehr is Tehran’s sole nuclear plant In 2019 Iran said it had started construction of a second Russia-supplied unit at Bushehr. A third plant is also in the works. Iran is working on a project to build a nuclear power plant using domestically developed technology, according to Pejman Jamshidi, deputy head of the Atomic Energy Organisation of Iran (AEOI).

Mr Jamshidi told national news agency Fars that Iran “possesses” a full fuel cycle from uranium mining, though enrichment and fuel manufacturing to spent fuel management.

He also said the country is producing radioisotopes for medical applications domestically and is planning to build in 2024 a large facility both to supply local demand and export.

Last month, AEOI director Mohammad Eslami was quoted by state media as saying that Iran was planning to build a 360-MW nuclear power plant in Darkhovin in the southwest of the country using indigenous reactor technology.
