Muscat: As per the Royal Orders of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said, which come in response to a request by the Iranian and US governments to help in transporting a consignment of heavy water (D2O) outside Iran to ensure the validity of the nuclear pact signed between the Islamic Republic of Iran and 5+1 Group, the relevant authorities in the Sultanate made arrangements to shift the consignment out of Iran.
The plan was executed in coordination with the US and Iranian parties as part of the implementation of the nuclear deal terms.
It should be noted that the nuclear deal between Iran and 5+1 Group states that the heavy water reserves should not exceed 130 tonnes. Quantities over this limit should be disposed of during the next 15 years by selling them in international markets.
