An Iranian official confirmed that his country had received a large delivery of “yellow cake” from Russia, state-run Islamic Republic News Agency reported on Tuesday.

Ali Akbar Salehi, the head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, said that Tehran had received nearly 197 tons of of uranium concentrate powder needed for the enrichment process, in exchange for 11 tons of low enriched uranium (LEU).

Salehi said that Iran had carried out the exchange with Russia in accordance with Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei’s letter regarding compliance with the Joint Comprehensive Protocol of Action (JCPOA), which instructed that Iran first take delivery of the yellow cake before exporting the LEU.

Salehi also expressed his hope that the JCPOA would be implemented soon, leading to the lifting of all sanctions on Iran, and to the restoration of its international standing to “normal.”

    It will not be long before that is coming across Americas pourous borders. Las Vegas will probably be taking bets on when the White House has to be abandoned and Wall Street. Obama has loaded this country with “freindlyMuslims”, and has turned most of our strategic planning over to them. Oh well as long as it does not interfere with the Bruce Jenner wannabes or the newly imposed 250,000 fine for psychologically offending someone in New York who is confused as to what bathroom he or she should use…then it is news that will never hit the radar. New York with this new law will be radio active to most normal folks without the yello cake.

  • If the exchange is part of P5+1 and Iran signed JCPOA, why it’s wetted your pants David Daoud?
