Russia suspends work at Iran nuclear plant over uranium compatibility

MOSCOW - Russia's state nuclear company Rosatom suspended work on revamping a factory at Iran's Fordow nuclear plant due to an issue with uranium compatibility, Rosatom unit TVEL said on Thursday.
"Uranium enrichment and the production of stable isotopes cannot be carried out in the same room," TVEL said in a statement, adding that it was "technologically impossible" to implement the project at this time.
TVEL said the Iranian side had been informed of its decision.
