Baku, Azerbaijan, Dec. 29
US Secretary of State John Kerry noted Azerbaijan's role in the withdrawal of Iran's uranium to Russia, RIA Novosti reported Dec. 29.
Earlier, Kerry said a ship with a cargo of 11.3 tons of low-enriched uranium left for Russia from Iran on Monday.
"Russia, as a participant of the JCPOA, played an essential role by taking this material out of Iran and providing natural uranium in exchange," he added.
Kerry also noted "a significant contribution" of Kazakhstan in providing some amount of natural uranium, which Iran has received in exchange for enriched material, as well as in realization of the delivery.
