Ali Akbar Salehi, head of Iran's Atomic Energy Organization, said in a report on Iran's television channel, saying the United States wants to buy heavy water used in the nuclear industry from Iran, though they had previously refused.
"Americans love to buy heavy water, very much," he said.
On the other hand, Salehi went on to say that Washington had previously refused to buy heavy water from Iran under Donald Trump's presidency. Iran's heavy water reserves currently stand at about 128 tonnes, meaning they do not exceed the ceiling set by the nuclear deal, which should not exceed 130 tonnes, despite Tehran's refusal of restrictions.
Salehi noted earlier: Continuing to sell heavy water products to other countries, including Europe, is subject to US sanctions, but our buyers, regardless of this limitation, based solely on the price and quality of the Iranian product. They continued their purchases during this period.
