United States to buy heavy water from Iran

The United States is buying 32 metric tons of Iranian heavy water, a key component for one kind of nuclear reactor, The Associated Press reported on Friday.

The purpose of the transaction is to help Iran meet the terms of last year's nuclear deal under which it agreed to curb its atomic program in exchange for billions of dollars in sanctions relief, according to the news agency.
