US REVOKES 2 SANCTIONS WAIVERS THAT ALLOWED IRAN TO STORE HEAVY WATER AND EXCHANGE URANIUM

On 3rd May, the US State Department revoked 2 sanctions waivers that had been granted under the JCPOA arrangements – one waiver allowed Iran to store excess heavy water produced in the uranium enrichment process in Oman – and any such heavy water must not be made available to Iran in any fashion.  The other had allowed Iran to swap enriched uranium for natural uranium – any involvement in transferring enriched uranium out of Iran in exchange for natural uranium will now be exposed to sanctions.
