Iran: We Will Continue Building at Arak Nuclear Facility


Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said yesterday (Wednesday) that his country would continue to build at the Arak (nuclear) facility, stressing that "The capacity at the Arak site is not going to increase, and no new nuclear fuel will be produced and no new installations will be installed, but construction will continue there."

Quick to respond, a spokesman from the French Foreign Ministry in Paris said, reconfirmed its stance that Iran stand by its word in the signed interim agreement reached last weekend in Geneva.

"The interim agreement specifically mentions the cessation of activity at the Arak nuclear facility. The text of the agreement clearly delineates the matter, and we call upon Iran to live up to it."
