Iran has begun to export excess quantities of heavy water, which could be used in the process to make atomic arms, as it moves to end a small but significant violation of a landmark nuclear deal, according to diplomats and an Iranian news site.Both Iran's semi-official ISNA news agency and two diplomats familiar with Iran's nuclear program reported that by Monday the country had transferred an amount of its surplus heavy water to Oman for sale.In February, a month after the deal went into effect, the agency noted for the first time that Iran had exceeded its allotted limit of heavy water.
