Iran cuts uranium gas stockpile under interim nuclear deal

Delegations of U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, Britain's Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif, German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius, EU High Representative Catherine Ashton, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi sit around the negotiations table during their meeting in Vienna November 24, 2014.

VIENNA - Iran has reduced its stockpile of low-enriched uranium gas and taken other action to comply with the terms of last year's interim nuclear agreement with world powers, a UN nuclear agency report showed on Monday.

The International Atomic Energy Agency issued a monthly update on the preliminary accord's implementation on the same day as Iran and the six global powers agreed to extend it until end-June after they failed to meet Monday's deadline for a final settlement of a 12-year dispute over Tehran's atomic ambitions.
