Iran is to receive a huge shipment of natural uranium from Russia to compensate it for exporting tons of reactor coolant, diplomats say, in a move approved by the outgoing U.S. administration and other governments seeking to keep Tehran committed to a landmark nuclear pact.Two senior diplomats said on condition of anonymity that the transfer recently agreed by the U.S. and five other world powers that negotiated the nuclear deal with Iran foresees delivery of 116 metric tons of natural uranium. The diplomats said any natural uranium moved to Iran after the deal came into effect would be under surveillance by the U.N.'s International Atomic Energy Agency for 25 years after implementation of the deal.
