#Iran : “Tehran may Modify `Arak Heavy Water Reactor ‘ thus Removing Stumbling Block”

#AceWorldNews says Tehran may modify Arak heavy-water reactor it is official.

An Iranian official said for the first time that Iran may modify a heavy-water reactor near Arak. “We can do some design change… in order to produce less plutonium in this reactor, and in this way allay the worries and mitigate the concerns,” Ali Akbar Salehi, head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, told Press TV.

The statement signals a willingness to compromise as the uncompleted Arak heavy water reactor was a stumbling block that almost derailed nuclear talks last November, Bloomberg reported.
