#AceWorldNews says Russian President Vladimir Putin says the implementation of the Geneva nuclear deal between Tehran and the six world powers will guarantee Iran’s right to use peaceful nuclear technology.
Speaking during a ceremony held to receive credentials of a number of foreign envoys including new Iranian Ambassador to Moscow Mehdi Sanaee on Thursday, the Russian president said the nuclear accord, which was inked between Iran and the Sextet of world powers – Russia, China, Britain, the US, France and Germany – on November 24 last year, should not remain only on paper.
#AceWorldNews says UN nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency, said Tuesday that a planned meeting with Iran next week had been postponed to February 8, without giving a reason, Reuters reported. The IAEA wants Iran to address allegations that it has researched how to develop nuclear bombs. Tehran says the nuclear program is entirely peaceful. In November, Iran and the IAEA agreed a cooperation pact, and six initial steps include access to two nuclear-related facilities and the provision of information.
#AceNewsServices says according to (INFOWARS) — The Department of Health and Human Services has ordered 14 million doses of potassium iodide, the compound that protects the body from radioactive poisoning in the aftermath of severe nuclear accidents, to be delivered before the beginning of February.
According to a solicitation posted on the Federal Business Opportunities website, the DHHS asks contractors to supply, “potassium iodide tablet, 65mg, unit dose package of 20s; 700,000 packages (of 20s),” a total of 14 million tablets. The packages must be delivered on or before February 1, 2014.
Potassium iodide helps block radioactive iodine from being absorbed by the thyroid gland and is used by victims of severe nuclear accidents or emergencies. Under current regulations, states with populations living within 10 miles of a nuclear plant are encouraged, but not required, to maintain a supply of potassium iodide.
#AceNewsServices says WASHINGTON — Iran’s nuclear deal with the West could allow more Iranian oil on the world market in the coming months, but it remains to be seen whether sanctions will be lifted enough to allow the pariah nation to return to its former position as an energy power.
The deal lasts for six months, during which time the two sides will seek a permanent settlement. The consequences for global energy will be huge if the negotiations eventually lead to an end of international sanctions, including the European Union’s ban on purchases of Iranian oil.
“If Iran really gets back to producing its oil and expanding capacity, the potential is almost as big as the shale gas revolution in the United States,” said Phil Flynn, senior energy analyst for the Price Futures Group.
Iran holds the world’s fourth-largest proven oil reserves and second-largest natural gas reserves, according to the International Energy Agency. Iranian oil exports have plummeted by 60 percent in the past two years as a result of the international sanctions. The sanctions have crippled Iran’s economy, which relies on crude oil sales for 80 percent of its export earnings.
