Iran poised to start dismantling nuclear infrastructure, official says

The head of Iran’s nuclear agency said Sunday that his country will apparently start dismantling part of its nuclear infrastructure this week under the agreement signed with Western powers. Ali Akbar Salehi said the removal of thousands of uranium-enriching centrifuges from the nuclear facilities in Natanz and Fordo would begin as soon as President Hassan Rouhani gives the order to do so. Iran is also supposed to take steps to ensure that its reactor in Arak and other facilities cannot be used for military purposes. Selahi estimated that the “huge task” would take his country about two months.
