Iran had moved centrifuges, machines that enrich uranium, at its Natanz and Fordow sites, the report by the global Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said.
The agreement for the redesign was signed separately this month by the foreign ministers of Iran, the U.S., the United Kingdom, France, Russia, China, Germany, and European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini, according to Reuters citing Iranian state media.
Iran’s Supreme Leader Khamenei ordered last month that the work to redesign the Arak facility will only be carried out once allegations of past military dimensions (PMD) of the country’s nuclear program had been settled.
The E3/EU+3 will engage in a range of collaborative activities in support of the Arak modernization project, including reactor design, fuel development, safety and spent fuel management among others.
Under the JCPOA clinched in July Iran should redesign and rebuild a modernized heavy water research reactor in Arak.
The United Nations nuclear watchdog says Iran has begun curbing its nuclear program in line with a deal with six world powers.
Yukiya Amano, the director general of the IAEA said on November 17 that the organization will work to provide a report on his final assessment of Tehran’s atomic work by mid-December.
