    Iran, Germany sign agreement on nuclear safety

    Iran and Germany signed an agreement to expand nuclear cooperation with the aim of promoting the capabilities of Iran’s Nuclear Safety System Center.

    The agreement was signed during a meeting between the head of the Iranian Nuclear Regulatory Authority, Hojjatollah Salehi, and the German Ambassador to Tehran Michael Klor-Berchtold, IRNA reported.

    In October, a delegation from the European Union (EU) and a team from the Iranian Nuclear Regulatory Authority held meetings to discuss the second cooperation project in the field of nuclear safety.

    The second project on mutual cooperation entails a boost to the technical capabilities of the Iranian Nuclear Regulatory Authority.

    The two sides had launched their first cooperation project of 2.5 million euros in the field of nuclear safety in July 2017.

    The interaction is part of a five-million-euro package approved in 2016 with regard to the Iran-EU cooperation on nuclear safety, according to which the EU helps the implementation of Annex III of the 2015 nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
