A large number of International Atomic Energy Organization (IAEA) inspectors have arrived in Iran to monitor the modification of the Arak nuclear complex which will be completed within the next few days, an Iranian official says.

Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) spokesman Behrouz Kamalvandi made the announcement on Tuesday, adding that around 130 IAEA inspectors, a number of whom are currently in Iran, are engaged in various aspects of the project.

The Implementation Day – the date when the nuclear agreement dubbed the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) will be implemented – will also be announced over the next few days, he added, noting that 5,060 centrifuges will stay operational in the Natanz nuclear facility as will 1,044 in the Fordow site.

In accordance with the JCPOA, we are committed to “removing the reactor’s calandria and fill its cavities with cement,” Kamalvandi stated.

Iran and the P5+1 group of countries – the five permanent members of the Security Council plus Germany – agreed over the JCPOA last July.  Based on it, Iran will restrict certain aspects of its nuclear activities in exchange for the removal of all economic nuclear-related sanctions against the country.
